Until That Day

Yes, November 11th is Veterans Day.
As I've noted before, I'm a peacetime veteran. I never saw battle, but plenty of our fellow Americans have, and it is their day, 11-11-14.
Someday...there will be no more veterans.

"2    Now it will come about that     In the last days     The mountain of the house of the LORD     Will be established as the chief of the mountains,     And will be raised above the hills;     And all the nations will stream to it.
3    And many peoples will come and say,     “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,     To the house of the God of Jacob;     That He may teach us concerning His ways     And that we may walk in His paths.”     For the law will go forth from Zion     And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
4    And He will judge between the nations,     And will render decisions for many peoples;     And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.     Nation will not lift up sword against nation,     And never again will they learn war."

Isaiah 2:2-4

Until that Day, there will be wars, there will be need of soldiers and sailors and pilots, and there will be Veterans. Until that Day. Honor those who serve, honor those who have served, and may God Bless our Veterans, on the 11th and every other day.

Veterans Day is apolitical-and I encourage all to seek out an event if possible.
