On Saturday we attended a memorial service at the National Veteran’s Cemetery for Meaghan’s uncle who passed away earlier this year.
I snapped the attached picture and couldn’t help but think about how the headstones seemed to go on and on (and this is just one section of one of many cemeteries).
I imagine it as looking back into history and seeing just how many people have sacrificed to put us in the position we are in today.
Sacrifice after sacrifice to give us the freedoms we have today.
Not so that we would be free to be as selfish as we want or to just do whatever we want when we want.
Freedom so that we can choose to also live our lives as these great examples that went before us have – in service to those we love and for a cause that we believe to be worthy.
Love and service freely chosen. Not of compulsion or coercion.
That’s worth fighting for.
Make it a great day.
