On Veterans Day, we remember gratefully the many men and women who have served our country and defended the freedoms we enjoy. Their selfless dedication to duty is the foundation of our wonderful country. In a special way, we recall the many heroes who have given their lives in service to our country. We entrust them to the Lord of life. We pray that those who have died may rest in his peace. Let us honor their memory by living gratefully and generously in service to one another for the good of our country. We thank our veterans for their service, their families for their sacrifice, and we pray for the protection and healing of all who, even now, selflessly preserve our freedom. We keep in prayer as well those who are this day in harm’s way, continuing their service to protect our way of life.
