Honoring the Soldier’s Uniform

Posted on

The soldier’s uniform expresses to the eyes that look upon it, the honorable character of Truth, Righteous, Faith, and Grace. The weapon identifies itself as being in the hands of a competent person having courage and great skill to use it.
This soldier has been disciplined to perform on the battlefield with endurance and perseverance that dwell within the soul of such person; determined to perform every skill possessed to its highest level. If you gaze into the eyes of this soldier, you will see hope. If you observe the footsteps, you will see steadiness, sureness, and strength.
This performance expresses readiness to defend the country and its people that this soldier Love. The soldier dressed complete in uniform, has performed with honor and captured the hearts of the people. With tears and prayers they express their Love with Thanks and God’s blessings.
Those who meet the soldiers in uniform, recognizes the great sacrifices they have made, and will take a moment to say a friendly “Hello” It is because they honor the sacrifices that were made and the training they received to bring honor to wear the uniform.
Soldiers never have to say they are fighting because they love their country, they express it in their performance.
Those who have been elected by the people to perform in governmental positions say they are serving their country, because of their love for it.
What sacrifices have they made?
The elected officials get paid to perform their duties and enjoy things that many others are not privileged to.
To see the way many of our elected official behave, they seem to care more about the party they represent, than the country and its people.
Is honor expressed in the character of elected officials in the same way it is expressed in the character of the soldier’s uniform?
