Motivation Monday: To Emulate and Honor the Work Ethic of a Soldier (Memorial Day Tribute)

It’s Monday, the beginning of a new week, and you need words of encouragement to start your week off right.

This week’s words of motivation: To emulate and honor the work ethic of a soldier.

As a tribute to Memorial’s Day, Thomas More Law Center has comprised a seven minute video to show [our] appreciation of our brave men and women in uniform, and to our fallen heroes. While this day may be remembered as a day of BBQ and beer drinking, we should all take this time to salute and respect those who would have given their lives for the sake of our freedoms around world.

I will be the first to say that “War” is never a beautiful display of art, nor is it a cause to bring justice around the world. But let us not forget that there is STILL evil in the world, and we do need protection from those who wish to harm the innocent–even God has created guardian angels to protect the innocent.

A soldier’s work ethic is self-less; and not selfish. It is not political nor is it economical. Soldiers live, as they die, with Honor. They don’t think about themselves, nor do they judge others, based on color, creed, or sexual orientation, when completing a task at hand. They are warriors and they are protectors. They only think about the objective and do whatever it takes to complete that mission–even if it means compromising self-interests. We need more soldiers, than politicians, in Congress to carry out the will of the People. 

So this week’s motivation is to emulate and honor the work ethic of a soldier. They know how to get the job done and do not judge others when completing a mission at hand.

God Bless all of our service men and women around the world.

Thank you for your service and may God watch over each and everyone of you and bring you home safe.
