On Wednesday, Nov. 11, The Frontline Faith Project is sponsoring it's fourth annual "An American Moment" to honor the men and women of our Armed Forces, past and present. This event will include one moment of silent prayer — prayer to thank our military for their service, to pray for the peaceful repose of those who have died, and to pray for the intentions of those still living. This event will take place at noon in each respective time zone, all across the world, on Veterans Day 2015.

"Freedom always comes at a high price.
It requires a generous heart, ready for sacrifice.
We cannot excuse ourselves
from our own personal responsibility for freedom.
There is no such thing as freedom without sacrifice."
~ Blessed Pope John Paul II
