Thanks For Your Service

Yesterday was the official celebration of Veteran’s Day, and today is the national holiday. War is indeed a brutal thing I’ve heard described to me in vivid detail by Veterans. The violence that war enacts not only ends far too many young lives, but war leaves a dark mark on any person who happens to endure its horrors. So today I want to say thank you to all the Vets who did their best to serve our country. At the same time I long for the day the prophet Isaiah described so long ago:

He will judge between the nations
    and will settle disputes for many peoples.
They will beat their swords into plowshares
    and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation,
    nor will they train for war anymore. Isaiah 2:4
