On every day we should remember the price paid for the freedom we enjoy, regardless of how messy and dysfunctional it has become. A few years ago a grocery store chain, Food City, produced an incredibly meaningful ad, especially poignant for Memorial Day. You may be among the millions who have viewed it. I have seen it dozens of times…and cried at virtually each viewing. Not a word is spoken in the video but the message registers loudly and clearly in auditory, visual, emotional and spiritual senses. Not only does it drive home the prayerful thanks we owe for the multi-generational legacy of the fight for freedom by millions of servicemen over the years, but it also highlights that sometimes the greatest of life’s messages are often unspoken ones. Grab a tissue and watch…then thank everyone you see who sacrificed for what we enjoy.
