Here is a small gift of the sacred words of a Jewish Warrior

Blessed Is The Match

Blessed is the match consumed
in kindling flame.
Blessed is the flame that burns
in the secret fastness of the heart.
Blessed is the heart with the strength to stop
its beating for honor’s sake.
Blessed is the match consumed
in kindling flame.

HOW DARE ANYONE ATTEMPT TO REMOVE GOD FROM ANYTHING IT IS HE WHO CREATED US.GIVE HIM THE LOVE AND HONOR AND RESPECT WHICH RIGHTFULLY BELONGS TO HIM.

Because God has been removed from everything but Church! ABSOLUTELY LUDICROUS when he lives Inside us in us all! I could go on all day, but I won't stoop to the stupidity of those who are offended by God

My sisters grand son gave his life for our county not long ago and was buried with full honors and that included God in the service. If we don't get and keep God in this country then we are like the ones tearing up our flag.

All of the United States Military past and present dead or alive should be given respect because they fought for this country and yours and my freedom ~~~ I do not think I need to say any more and if you do not agree with me then I have a simple answer for you just move to another country and see how much freedom you have~~~I have said enough~~~Rest in Peace and Thank You Vincent and all of the other Military who are or who have fought for our country. It is a thankless deed.

Doris Garrett you are correct. It is a thankless job that was done for this country.If it was not for God and my mothers prayers, I would not be sitting here now. We need to keep our military in our prayers always.

The government does not have the right to decide if God should be part of our lives or our deaths. Our country was forged through God's grace. Let's remember that!

First you said that our government doesn't have the right to decide if your god should be a part....then you want your god to be a part. This atheist veteran doesn't want (or require) the word 'god' during her funeral, and the government shouldn't force it upon me, or my loved ones.

America already is suffering because we have turned our eyes and ear away from the word of God. There is only for who died for us and that is the only Son of God, Jesus. I want to be in His favor.

This is a - well, an UNTRUTH. One family asked the VA at one cemetery not to bring religion into their loved one's funeral, but someone did it anyway. The family complained and the head guy instructed volunteers to mention god only if they knew the family's religious preference. PERIOD. But I suppose there is more to this silly petition than that, isn't there?

'silly' Adrien? When is freedom silly???

It's silly because it's meaningless and because it isn't freedom at all. The FAMILY of the deceased was exercising THEIR freedom NOT to participate in some enforced religious ceremony with which they clearly did not agree. Their freedom to honor their dead in a way consistent with their beliefs was ignored and suppressed. Don't be disingenuous. This is about religious people forcing their beliefs on others who do not share those beliefs. This petition basically honors the theocratic...

Feedom of religion is Our Right as an American/ Human being for that matter. To take away that Right is so Wrong... People Died so that we could have that Right.. It is Our Choice to Have God Present, ask Most of the Men and Women in the Military why They are there and My guess is most will Respond "GOD and COUNTRY" in that order...

Freedom FROM religion is also a Basic Human Right. They aren't taking God away from anyone. They are just giving a person the CHOICE.

Brenda German & Michelle. It's fine to think your life is your own to control, that you have all the choices before you. It's a myth of youth. Life has a funny way of showing that you are determined by all the details you have no control over. Soldiers generally learn to pray on the battlefield or after a grievous wound. When your life or someone you love is nearly snuffed out-- then perhaps you will ask for the only ONE who can help-- & feel His peace flow through you for the first time....

You are right Brenda. The choice is Heaven or Hell. Makes me think they are too ignorant to know that's their only two choices but God will allow them to go to hell. How shall they escape if they neglect so great salvaton?

our soldiers put their lives on the line each and every day. they have to endure horrendous conditions, i.e. weather, etc. so that we Americans can have the freedom to live and abide by God. It is only fair that they should be able to keep our GOD in their prayers or THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE. They deserve our respect and I stand by them 100%
