On my commute home from work I couldn't shake Dietrich Bonhoeffer out of my mind. His life, his sacrifice for liberty and most of all his love for God and country. Growing up in Germany in a wealthy family, Dietrich had the world at his fingertips and nothing holding him back. When Hitler became Chandler of Germany Dietrich was given meany opportunities to join the Nazie party, but he knew that his duty to God and his love for humanity confirmed his resolve to stand against injustice and appos the rise of the communism which spread throughout his mother country. Dietrich fought for righteousness against tyranny and bigotry and paid for it with his life in 1945 while in prison for this fight. Dietrich's fight was fermly rooted in Christ's love. He died only a matter of days before Hitler was killed. Days from freedom, and yet he still would not back down from his resolve to stand. Where are our Patriots, why do only so far and few between have such grit to fight against injustice as Dietrich Bonhoeffer did? Lord please help me find such fortitude as he did and stand against injustice and tyranny as I see it coming down the pike. To be a Patriot is a honor and we as Americans need to take a lesson from a Patriot who fought not only for his country men but also for his faith. I need such stamina and foundation in this day and age.
