My Thanks for Giving

On this weekend when everyone gathers to thank God for their blessings, I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to the Super Heroes in my life – in our lives.

There are men and women who, out of a wholly unselfish place that resides in so few, risk their lives to keep us safe – to guard us from harm – to fight for the oppressed whose lives have been cruelly used, whose families have been destroyed, whose lives have threatened.

One young man in particular, whom I have had the honor of knowing for many years, who has my utmost respect for his dedication, his commitment, his honorable heart, and who does not seek glory for himself in what he does so will herein remain almost nameless, is Mike. Those of you who know me will know by that alone who he is, and that is enough for my purposes here.

I can not in words given me to use, express to you, Mike, how much I hold dear to my heart your life and your strength. I thank you for your service in Iraq, your continued service at your present station, and your friendship to me and mine.

God bless you, young man. You are ever in my thoughts and prayers.
