A Bit Off-Topic...But is it??

We are blessed to live in an amazing country that affords us rights, privileges and comforts that many people around the world can only dream of.  One of the privileges that we still enjoy is the right to choose how we will educate our children.  As homeschoolers, we are so blessed to have the opportunity to educate our children at home--to teach them as WE see fit, and to instill in them the values that WE stand on.  It is a blessing that MANY around the world do not enjoy.

I stumbled on this video this morning on the Why Homeschool blog.  It hit me hard.  Every blessing, every right, every privilege that is mine to enjoy, is only mine because of the sacrifice of those who fought for me.  

"I salute the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much for our freedom."
"All gave some, some gave all."

"I Fought For You"


  1. That was an awesome post. Thank you.

  2. I know that I will fight for my freedom, my family, and my country, if I have to. What bothers me is that my sons might have to. The only way that I can accept the sacrifices that so many others made for me and the freedom that I enjoy is to support my sons if they make the same choice. I will have to let them go physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It's far easier to think of my own sacrifice than it is that of my children. God willing, may they never have to. God willing, may they serve with courage and honor if they must.
