Let's not take barefooting for granted

Being barefoot connects us with the Earth and doing so encourages us to seek peace and to want to experience it in our lives.

Today, let's remember those who keep the lines of un-peaceful conflict far from where we live so that we may enjoy our peaceful, barefoot lifestyle.

How many soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines would love to just forget about what they are doing, kick off their shoes and just walk around? When they are on duty, chances are, they can't even think about it or else they can endanger the lives of their comrades and themselves.

So I spend this morning's barefoot time remembering others who sacrifice for me and with gratitude toward them.
