Their Stars Have Turned to Gold

As a member of Blue Star Mothers of America, I receive several e-mails each week which begin with the words, "Their Stars have turned to Gold". These e-mails, (sometimes two or three of them in a day) share a brief synopsis of who these men and women are and how they spent their final moments. These postings are difficult to read, to say the least.... imagine the families who must live these words.
So why this post? It's a sunny, summer Sunday afternoon. I feel blessed for all the freedoms I am able to enjoy. I know these freedoms are not free. I know for generations, we have had a strong military to protect our freedoms. This cannot be forgotten.
My prayer each day is for our military to remain strong. My prayer is for our airmen, soldiers, sailors and marines to continue to protect our country and our flag. My prayer is for their families, to remain loyal and have faith. My prayer is that each of us say Thank You every day of our lives.
My prayer is for stars that have turned gold.
