Peace. Human beings were designed to thrive in an atmosphere of peace. Peace is so highly prized by mankind that we are willing to fight wars to secure peace within our borders. President Dwight Eisenhower said, “We seek peace, knowing that peace is the climate of freedom.”
And we all know that freedom isn’t free. Today we remember the American soldier, that man, that woman who paid the price for our freedom in America, our days of peace in this nation.
General Douglas MacArthur, American general Supreme Allied Commander of South-West Pacific (1945) Lived: 1880–1964
The measure of peace that we enjoy today was paid for by men and women who were willing to suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war. On this Memorial Day weekend, I want to invite you to enjoy this You Tube video, The Path of the Warrior. And stay tuned. On the next post I am eager to honor the path of another warrior–the warrior who fought for the peace of our souls.
It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.
– General Douglas MacArthur
