Give your Respose

Wounded Warriors

Vicki
July 13, 2005

On July 19 in Montauk, New York, Ryan Kelley, Chris Carney and Heath Calhoun are scheduled to finish the Soldier Ride National Tour, which began May 21 in Marina Del Ray, California (that's a 4,200 mile trip, in case you're wondering). Now, riding a bike across the entire country is impressive enough, but Ryan lost a leg in the Iraq War and Heath lost both of his!

They are riding to raise awareness (and money) for The Wounded Warrior Project, an organization that provides supplies, counseling and support for wounded soldiers when they come home. Both men were helped by the Project and wanted to do what they could to return the favor. Heath, 24, said, ""More than anything, we just want people to know that their troops are coming back and they need your support, whether you support the war or not. . .Thoughts and prayers are important, but they don't teach a kid how to ski after losing a leg." So, he and his fellow riders (other have joined for part of the ride at different stages across the country) are doing what they can to help in a tangible way.

In a way, all of us are "wounded warriors" in the ongoing battle against sin, although our "wounds" may not be as visible as those of these men. Thoughts and prayers are important, but what are you doing - in a tangible way- to help your fellow wounded warriors? How have you been helped? Drop me a line and let me know.
