No Greater Love ...

In a recent letter to his family, thirty-year-old Staff Sergeant Marcus Golczynski spoke to all of us:

"I want all of you to be safe. And please don't feel bad for us. We are warriors. And as warriors have done before us, we joined this organization and are following orders because we believe that what we are doing is right. Many of us have volunteered to do this a second time due to our deep desire to finish the job we started. We fight and sometimes die so that our families don't have to. Stand beside us. Because we would do it for you. Because it is our unity that has enabled us to prosper as a nation."

Lord, may those words always be a source of comfort and strength to Sergeant Golczynski's eight-year-old son, Christian.
