A soldier and a journalist—veterans of the war against Islamo-fascism—are discussing their respective injuries over lunch.
“If I look at you, I can’t see your left eye—just your right eye,” one of them says.
“If I look at your nose, I can’t see your left eye,” the other replies.
“So—if you and I stick together, we’ve got 100 percent!” the soldier says.
“Exactly!” the journalist responds. And they both crack up.
Incredible, isn’t it? Two young men, who will carry their injuries for the rest of their lives, can joke about them.
I hope you will join me in praying, today and everyday, for the safety of our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and Coast Guard personnel, who risk their lives protecting us. And as Chuck suggests, we should also consider engaging in some concrete, boots-on-the-ground help to their families while their husbands and fathers are far away.
