Korean War Memorial in Washington, D.C.
Thank you men and women who have served so bravely and selflessly. Thank you spouses who have served as their home front soldiers. We are thankful for you!
Thank you to my family members and friends who have served or are still serving today. We love you, pray for you, and thank you!
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
― John F. Kennedy
November, a time of Thanksgiving, when we sit together and reflect on our year, what we are thankful for, and come together and share a meal with family and friends.
Step away from the turkey for a second this Thanksgiving and think about, talk about, reflect on , pray about , and give to some great organizations that are doing all they can to provide for those in difficult circumstances.
I challenge you, sit down at your Thanksgiving dinner, and discuss these three organizations with your family and friends and then choose one to give to this Holiday season.
