"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen

Lest We Forget

Heavenly Father, thank you for those, past and present, who willingly (and in the past, perhaps not-so-willingly) put themselves in harm's way so that we could live in a country free from religious persecution and oppression, where we can cast our votes according to our own consciences, and where we can openly confess Your name.

I pray, Lord, that you would bless these brave men and women who sacrificed so much--sometimes their very lives--so we can live in this land of plenty. Help them know, Lord, how much we owe to them, and how much we appreciate their service.

In the name of Jesus, who made the ultimate sacrifice for us so we could be free indeed, I pray. Amen.

    I salute your entry!
