On this day, November 11, let us remember the brave men and women that have served our country and who have given us the freedoms we love so very much. Let us always pray that these freedoms will continue in our country for generations to come. Thank you for all you that done for me personally and my many family and friends. It has become a mission of mine to thank every veteran I meet on the street or driving in the car. If you own a US flag, proudly display it on your home today.
We should also pray for those men and women currently serving in our Armed Forces, either here on US soil or abroad in a foreign country. Lord Jesus Christ, please watch over them and keep them all safe. They have given their lives to protect and defend this great nation – they deserve our respect, loyal, and prayers.
Yesterday, was the 241st Anniversary of the U.S. Marines. President Ronald Reagan once said, “Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but the Marines don’t have that problem.”

Dear Lord Jesus Christ, we give you praise and thanksgiving for our veterans in our communities and around the world who have bravely served to protect us from harm. Be with them this day and protect them. We ask Our Blessed Mother to always be their Mother ready to protect them as well. For those who have given their lives, we ask that their families are healed and protected from any harm. Amen.
