I am also a mother, a grand-mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a wife.
Watching my little grandchildren play across the lawn, our flag held high, it just became even more clear to me
We need prayer for peace.
Not long ago my son and I stood at the grave of his good friend, a boy just like my boy, tall and strong, who grew up here, played here, rode his dirt bike, flying over the hills behind our farm, with my boy and other boys. They raided my refrigerator, the cookie jar, tracking mud in the house, doing all the things that boys will do. They grew up handsome, strong and tall. They all went off to college together and then...Tommy went off to war.
As we stood there together at his grave, the grass still brown, with my son's strong arm tight around me, I could feel him shaking. I was overwhelmed with grateful and thankful prayers for Tommy and all the other men and women that have stood tall and strong and brave for us all and thankful and grateful to God that my son was standing there with me...
and that all Mothers should have their sons and daughters standing with them.
And we do, these boys and girls who give all of themselves for us, fight for us and stand watch for us are all our sons and daughters. Making this country safe for all of us. A safe world for our babies and their babies to come.
I once read that if all the Mothers, grandmothers,wives, sisters and daughters of the men who are at war could all come together that there was nothing that these women could not heal with prayer in just one afternoon.
I hope that you will join with me.
