Chatting With Vets
I don't believe this "we are a changing nation."
We are an uneducated nation regarding principles of liberty.
Last June we decided we would drive my car on our road trip to save gas money. I didn’t say a word when my husband removed my flowery front license plate and replaced it with his Viet Nam Service Medal plate. I haven’t asked him to remove it either and I’m not going to because I love the way other guys his age, probably vets, wave at me from the side of the road. I eagerly respond with my thumb up. We are united and proud together.
This week, my husband’s kidney stone pain caused a long wait for me in the VA medical center but I passed my time conversing with a few patients and we discussed the election outcome. I have to admit, I’m always surprised when I meet a liberal veteran. He was perfectly happy with the state of our nation whereas the conservative man cringed with the idea of four more years with a president who apologizes for the United States to anti-American nations. Then I heard the voice of a young Marine woman who has decided to drop her military career adding she’s not about to put her life on the line for this country anymore.
It is disturbing to see our great nation so divided, even at the VA! Nonetheless, I want to thank every veteran who has served our country and I pray for the future of the United States.
First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings be made for everyone, for kings and all those who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil life in all godliness and dignity. This is good, and it pleases God our Savior, Who wants everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
