Raam, this is one of those quotes that just jumped out and grabbed me. “Ask yourself what you would die for so that you may know the reason you’re living.” I have to ask, did you come up with this yourself? This is the kind of quote that goes down in history books. I thought about it earlier today when I read your post on my phone, and it’s still lingering in my head.

Being in the military, this is a question I’ve been confronted with before. I had to swear under oath that I would “support and defend the constitution of the United States.” For many, the requires making the ultimate sacrifice. I am reminded daily that my life is so good because of the sacrifices so many others have made. As messed up as our country is, I still believe there is something here worth fighting for. Of course, I wish it didn’t require fighting for…

Oath aside, I’m honestly not sure what I would die for. My sister was the first person that popped in my head. There really is so much out there that is worth it though. I’ve spent some time thinking…what is my cause really? What is worth dedicating my life to? It’s somewhat of a daunting questions, which may be the reason I’ve avoided truly facing it. Your post has brought it to the forefront once again. I don’t have an answer now, but this is something I’m going to keep thinking about. Please don’t let it slip into the shadows once again. You are such an inspiration!
