War is real. Real people die, bad people die, and good people die. War is Real. Our military is not just a protection shield you throw up, or a sword you swing, it is made up of REAL people, people who willingly joined the Military to protect our nation in a time of War knowing that they would be put to the test. They joined because they were not just willing to be a part of the shield and sword but because their sense of DUTY propelled them to. They are aware of their duty, and they are prepared to do their duty at all cost even death; their families know their duties and accept that ultimate cost is a looming possibility. However to those who only see us as a shield and sword; please do not assume to know what duty is, what is your duty? Are you prepared to die for your duty? Are you called upon to go yet again into someone else’s backyard and put your life on the line, again? And if so would you? Our military will yet again if asked because it is our duty, but let it be the better choice.
“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one.[a] Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:41-42
Let us choose what is better.
