McAulay: Dear American Soldiers…

Dear American Soldiers,

Thank you for your sacrifice, your service, and your humble heart. The work you accomplish is not taken for granted; please know that every time I lay my head on my pillow I am truly thankful for everything you do. Philippians 2:3-4 is a perfect description of your valued service:

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility, value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others.”  Philippians 2:3-4

I feel honored to know that there are people like you who are willing to serve this great nation. Because of you, we can all live in peace. When you are tired, you continue to serve. When you feel as if you cannot go any further, you push through. Your strength and integrity is truly inspiring.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, Soldiers are the reason we can hope for a brighter future. This is a post that reminds me of the great sacrifice and work of America’s Military:

It is the Soldier, not the minister
Who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the Soldier, not the poet
Who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer
Who has given us freedom to protest.

It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the Soldier, not the politician
Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag.

With Support, Prayer, and Many Blessings,

Madeleine McAulay
