Jim Denison on Three Biblical Steps to Respond to Ongoing Election Conflict

Jim Denison

My father died on this day in 1979.

When America became involved in World War II, he enlisted in the U.S. Army. Because he could type, he was made a radio operator and stationed with three hundred other soldiers on an island in the South Pacific. Only 17 survived.

My father gave up his aspirations for a medical career to serve his country. While stationed on that island, he contracted a skin disease that he battled for the rest of his life. He suffered a massive heart attack in his early 30s and died of a second heart attack at the age of 55. I have long wondered if the horrific stress of his wartime service contributed to his health issues.

Yet my father never complained about what he had suffered for our country. Not once. He was proud to be an American and proud to have defended his nation. He considered ours to be the greatest country on Earth, one worthy of his sacrifice and, if necessary, his life.

I wanted to begin today’s article with this tribute to my father for two reasons. One is to express publicly my profound admiration for his patriotism and sacrifice. The second is to seek to emulate his love for our country in responding to the current state of our nation.
