We owe a huge thank you to William "Kyle" Carpenter. He'll soon become the eighth living veteran of U.S. combat in Iraq and Afghanistan to receive the Medal of Honor, the nation's highest military award. Carpenter lost most of his jaw and an eye when he fell on a grenade to shield a fellow Marine from the blast. He was labeled dead on arrival at a field hospital - but he fought his way back. He spent 2½ years in a hospital as doctors worked to rebuild his body. Continued:
Pray for the families and loved ones affected by the devastating tragedy in Connecticut and stand with them for healing and comfort.
Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton - In 1848, they and Lucretia Mott held the first convention in the US to work toward women’s suffrage. 72 years later, in 1920, the 19th amendment became law and women finally got the right to vote. Sadly, these visionaries did not live to see that happen. Thank you, ladies, and all the countless others you trained to follow in your footsteps.
