One of the themes that runs through my blog concerns the talents and gifts each of us is born with that are meant to be shared with others to the betterment of our world and for our own sense of fulfillment and destiny. It is a divine spark born into each one of us, intended to burn brightly for all the world's benefit and for own sense of contentment and authenticity.
I am always inspired to meet individuals who have not only discovered their gifts but are also following their hearts in expressing them. Often to his own personal sacrifice I have witnessed Brian's clarity of vision when it comes to his chosen life in the military. Brian's desire to protect his country and its citizens transcends political ideology, and even though he goes through times of personal struggle and sacrifice, his heart is strengthened in the knowledge that he is following where it leads him.
Having been through and seen what he has in his years in the military, Brian has a perspective on life, relationships, and the world we live in that deserves our attention, and certainly our admiration and respect. I know that I feel a profound sense of appreciation for individuals such as Brian who are willing to serve with such a sense of purpose and commitment, regardless of what that may mean for their own lives and the lives of those who love them.
