In Honor Of A Hero
Yesterday, along a 200-mile stretch from Midlothian, Texas (where Kyle resided) to the Texas State Cemetery in Austin, thousands of "the rest of us" paid their respects to a man who gave it all; and gave it from his heart. It was raining in Texas yesterday, but that didn't prevent Americans from showing up to let Chris Kyle's family know that they acknowledge and appreciate the sacrifice he (and they) have made.
After the procession passes, the flags will be stored, and people will return to their lives. But Chris Kyle will live on in the hearts of those who stood in the driving rain yesterday. His story will burn in the memory of every child present, and they will know what it means to stand for something and offer their talents and their love of freedom on behalf of others. Chris Kyle loved his family, his home state of Texas, and America with the full force of his personality. God has welcomed Chris home, and I pray that his sacrifices will result in unparalleled honor for this man and his God.
Psalm 112:8-10 "Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes. They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor, their righteousness endures forever; their horn will be lifted high in honor."
