A story that lasts forever at Christmas time


During a quite moment the soldier hums Silent Night and wonders if anyone really cares. Then he hears a voice from the darkness.  “ I WAS BORN ON THIS NIGHT TO BRING MY FATHER’S WORD TO THE WORLD. MY FATHER IS CALLED BY MANY DIFFERENT NAMES AND WORSHIPED BY MANY PEOPLE IN DIFFERENT WAYS. YOU FIGHT FOR THIS FREEDOM AND BELIEF AND YOU ARE NOT ALONE. WELL DONE AMERICAN SOLDIER”. The soldier says a prayer before reassuming his position.

Where is this place that the soldier fights for our freedom? The name and place don’t matter. It could be Valley Forge, Northern Virginia, The Ardennes, Chosin Resevoir, Korea, Vietnam, or somewhere in Iraq or Afghanistan. For over 200 years, there have been American Soldiers far away from home every Christmas defending freedom. They are of both genders, races and religions.

Remember it is never to late to send Christmas wishes, even after Christmas day. Find a moment of privacy and say a prayer for our American Soldiers. Merry Christmas to all and I will speak to you next year.
