Not about Tokyo, but amazing nonetheless

This is a simple yet powerful video we hope you’ll take 5 minutes and 23 seconds to watch. It’s a reminder of the amazing things that hundreds of thousands of incredible people are doing for us today. The kind of courage required for service in our armed forces is awe-inspiring, and even though it feels like we’re a million miles away, we couldn’t be more proud of these amazing individuals.

It’s interesting to remember sometimes that our grandparents endured the horrors of WWII, when Japan was our sworn enemy. Now they are one of our stronger allies, and we live here in peace. Leaving your political convictions behind about all that’s going on in the U.S. and around the world, it’s good to remember that while things are rough for many of our friends and family right now, there are countless Americans who are willing to give the ultimate sacrifice so you don’t have to. And this goes for all those who protect us: fire fighters, EMTs, police (especially the Colorado State Patrol, yee haw Blake), etc.

We pray for their continual safety, and a speedy return home for the troops in harm’s way.
