President Bush honors military families

militaryflagcross.jpgNothing can ever be more painful than losing loved ones. Properties can be re-accumulated, careers re-established, but family members will forever be irreplaceable… and parents losing children inconsolable.

But times of pain have a way of bringing out the best in people. The circle of life continues and those that are left behind find themselves with a new purpose: honoring their dead by reaching out to others.

President Bush recently honored military families, with a special note of thanks to those who had lost loved ones in military service. He further praised these families for displaying the same courage their lost beloveds displayed, by turning their grief around to a compassionate purpose.

Families are coming up with creative ways to honor their loved ones’ memories, reaching out to the other soldiers who are away from their own families or collecting school supplies for Iraqi students. Truly, it takes courage to give some more after already giving (and losing) so much.
