You NEED to watch this video today! If you have been as downtrodden as I have been watching what’s going on in America this month, Marcus Luttrell will refill your cup of pride and patriotism. Lutrell is called the ‘Lone Survivor’ because while in Afghanistan, he was involved in Operation Red Wings, during which the four-man Special Reconnaissance element with SDV-1 was discovered by local herdsmen, subsequently ambushed, and all killed except Luttrell. Luttrell was awarded the Navy Cross for his actions during the operation. This man still spends his life serving you and me. And then he gives this AMAZING speech at the RNC. WATCH it… and grab the Kleenex for when he goes off-script all I can say is ‘Merica!
Here’s what he has to say 4:00 minutes into the speech, you thought the first 4 minutes were amazing? Just wait!!!
“The only way we survive this is together, not apart. In order for ANY life to matter, we all have to matter. You understand? To the next generation, this is for you; your war is here, you don’t have to go searching for it. Your people are afraid.”
But then at 5:30 in the video it gets really good… break out the tissue. You can either read it or watch it. I suggest you watch it though:
“I stand among you walking among giants. Now we’re looking for the next generation of giants. Who among you are will love something more than you love yourself? Who among you are going to step up and take the fight to the enemy? Because it’s here. I challenge all of you to fight for this country and for each and every one of us. Look the world outside of our borders is a dark place, a scary place. America is the light, and her people are the goodness that grows from that. She’ll always be worth fighting for and it was my greatest honor to fight for her every day of my adult life. I just wanted to come up here and thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to serve you for the last 20 years and I swear to Got I’m going to spend the next 20 paying you back. God Bless!”
