Well today is Remembrance Day. War is a terrible thing – certainly there’s reason to argue against the taking up of weapons and nations going to battle. The cumulative damage that war has brought to our world over history is incredible. War is certainly the greatest testament to the terrible influence sin has had on man.
Yet, there are also times where battles are necessary – to fight against evil that would seek to tear apart justice and plunge the world into chaos. Remembrance Day is all about remembering not only the calamity of war but honouring those who battled (and are still battling) and putting their own lives on the line to keep evil from winning. Today, I choose to recognize and honour those who fight for us. I choose to honour the families and friends of those who have lost their lives in that fight, because they too have paid a price so that we could know freedom. To the men and women in the good fight – I salute you, and I thank you!
