The Mary Mac Show | Remembering Our Veterans

The Mary Mac Show PodcastIn Episode 101, we honor our veterans this week in the USA for all they have sacrificed for our freedom. We also remember veterans around the world who represent their country’s citizens.

Veterans are outstanding people.

They’ve sacrificed so much of their emotional, mental and physical strength for our benefit.

They’ve experienced horrors which we will never know and live with those traumas for many years after they leave the military.

Some have lost limbs, had permanent and temporary injuries, traumatic brain injuries as well as post traumatic stress disorder.

These injuries may take months or years to heal, if they ever do.

And their families welcome them home and help them endure the aftermath of illness, injury and war.

So on Veterans Day, this week on November 11th in the USA, and on your Veterans Day around the world, we thank those who put their lives on the line for our safety and freedom.

But we also thank their family and friends who love them and care for them as they recover.

Bless all of you!

The Mary Mac Show | Honoring Our Veterans

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 49, we commemorate the amazing valor of our veterans this week in the USA yet wherever you live around the world, we join with you on your special day in honoring these courageous men and women who keep us free.

Veterans are exceptional people. They go where others dare to go, do things that other dare to do, and live with the consequences.

They harbor all the pain of that experience – emotional, mental and physical.

They may come home changed to their families also emotionally, mentally and possibly physically.

They may have sustained loss of limbs, temporary or permanent injury, traumatic brain injury and post traumatic stress disorder or what was once called shell shock decades ago.

We bless our veterans and the sacrifices they and their families make for our benefit…for our freedom.

The Mary Mac Show | Grieving For A Nation

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In this week’s episode, I speak briefly about the grief we feel after the death of an individual and how that correlates to the grief we feel as a nation in light of all that is going on in the United States and around the world right now.

I grieve for my nation and I wanted to share my thoughts on this very important topic a few days before our election day.

People around the world know oppression and the inability to speak their mind. And, we too, are now having our free speech rights curtailed by those who wish to take our freedoms away.

Even one of our best known podcasters, Joe Rogan, has been censored for a topic he covered on his show by offended employees of the very company who just purchased his podcast.

I know people around the world who have lived in Socialist and Communist countries have experienced this grief – suppression of speech, personal freedoms and seen much violence leading to the death of family and friends.

Here, we are grieving for our nation as we are unaccustomed to having our liberties, property or lifestyle affected by those who don’t love our nation.

So if you’ve felt oppressed in your part of the world, you are welcomed to share your experiences and comments below.

With Love,

Mary Mac
