Memorial Day 2011

As you give your all to today’s workout, reflect on what you would be willing to give to your country.

Today we commemorate men and women who died while in military service to the United States. Without a doubt, you would be willing to sacrifice your life for a loved one. Possibly, some of you would even be willing to sacrifice your life for a good friend. But how many of us, if we really searched deep within ourselves, would be willing to die for your countrymen. I think most of us would, if asked to,  if the stakes were high enough, and if the cause was pure and just.

As Americans, one of our greatest strengths is the ability we have shown over 200 years to rally together as Americans to face enemy’s of freedom. The fiercer the enemy, the more forceful and unified our national response has been.

In the Bible it says, “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (John 15:13) Why is America the greatest nation the earth has ever seen? Because when asked, we answer the call and are willing to risk all for our countrymen. Our fierce love knows no limits, as shown over and over again in our national willingness to give all, and it is the strength of American unity. Love it or leave it!~Justin
