“You are not here to merely make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget that errand.”
Woodrow Wilson, Founders Address, Swarthmore College, 1923
It doesn’t take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle.

Colonel Dave Hunt of “Tough Talk with Colonel Hunt” has a short piece concerning a recent visit to Walter Reed Army Medical Center (click here to read the article). In view of the ongoing Joshua Sparling “death wish” card, this is a refreshing recap of a day spent with America’s finest - its wounded warriors. May God bless each of them and their families as our country begins the holy day season.
Today is the 64th anniversary of the day that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt said would live in infamy. As approximatley 2,000 WWII veterans die each day, it is fitting that we should pause to honor these heros. Likewise, it is equally fitting that we should honor a new generation of war heros, the men and women doing the fighting and the dying in Iraq and Afghanistan. May the Lord protect them and shield them from harm.
