Anything worth having is rarely free. Someone has to work for it, and others are more than willing to take it away for their own selfish gains. And You Peace is something everyone else desires.
The peace you enjoy was not freely given. It was earned by generations of people standing up to tyranny and refusing to willingly hand over what little they had. No one understands the value of this more than those who lay down their lives for the peace and freedom of others.
I remember how my nation would help others by lending them aircraft and other means of protection on what was known as a ‘lend-lease’ policy. The President likened it to a neighbor’s house catching fire and lending him a garden hose to put out the flames before they lit your house.
Sometimes to help keep our peace and freedom, it is occasionally essential to help our friends and neighbors by lending them what they need.
What are your thoughts?

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future.
Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
