A call to veterans

The article A Charge to Veterans No Longer In Uniform is a reminder to all veterans – from many years ago to today – that we should continue to serve, even in our civvies. (I should mention that a great veterans group The Mission Continues posted it on Facebook – which is where I found it.)

The article highlights a letter written by General Jonathan Wainwright sent to Soldiers discharged from the military, following their service in World War II.
I personally love this quote:

“Start being a leader as soon as you put on your civilian clothes. If you see intolerance and hate, speak out against them. Make your individual voices heard, not for selfish things, but for honor and decency among men, for the rights of all people.”

How do you make your voice heard? How do you lead? How do you continue your call to serve?

“There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.”

I’m not sure where this came from but it fits me right now.

I recently had to let go of a very dear friend because they were not good to me or for me. It is hard & sad because we had grown close. At least it felt that way.

In the end they had become a drag on my self-esteem. It felt as if the only reason they wanted to be my friend was so they had someone to lecture or talk negative about to others. I’m much happier now knowing that they will no longer have that ability.

I did fall down…yes, but I didn’t need another mother.  I needed a friend. Now, I’m getting back up with out you.
