I reflect today on sacrifices. The sacrifice a mother makes for her children. Sacrifices of those going into the religious life or priesthood. Sacrifices those who volunteer make to serve others.
And of course the sacrifice those who serve our country make. They give up their time, their families, their comfortable way of life and sometimes the greatest sacrifice...their lives. They do this to keep us safe, to preserve our way of life and our freedom.
I am eternally grateful for everyone who makes a sacrifice for others and today I am most thankful for the sacrifices made by the United State Military Men & Women. And I think of the military families like my cousin Tiffany Yori-Brown who awaits the return of her beloved husband. God Bless our military men & women and their families.
