The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace…

Noah in Kandahar in 2004

“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.” ~Douglas MacArthur

I too pray for peace and I recognize that the price of freedom has come at a much higher cost for some than others.  Today I thank and honor the veterans who have given so much in the service of their country and I thank and pray for those who are presently serving.

Our soldiers are literally and figuratively the backbone of this country and it is their strength that has made America strong…may God bless them – one and all.

Day four hundred and ninety-three of the new forty – obla di obla da

I teach at NDSU...but I remain a student of life with all the enthusiasm that entails. My favorite saying is, "Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down." In the new forty that is what I am doing...building my wings.
