My Prayer this Veterans Day
Instead of God bless the United States of America this Veterans Day, I must pray…
Dear Lord, please forgive them for they know what they are doing to veterans coast to coast. Their policies to deny benefits, deny healthcare, deny Agent Orange, deny Gulf War Illness, deny medications, are all designed to eliminate the very warriors who volunteered to be bullet sponges for what was once a great nation.
Dear Lord, please find a means to honor these warriors with peace and ease their sufferings as their beloved Nation betrays them time and time again.
Dear Lord, please go with the families and his widow, and his orphan all but forgotten of the promises of a grateful nation.
Dear Lord, please hear our pleas as our voices continue to fall upon the deaf ears of those sworn to the same oath: to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same…
Please, dear Lord, have mercy upon their souls… Amen.
