The past few months I have been working on a special project for a family from my church. They asked me to create a video about the life of their son.
I don’t do very many side video projects because the time it takes but when the father asked me, I could see it in his eyes that this project was very important. We then began to work together on a script and arrange interviews.
As I came to the end of editing the video, I realized that the men and women who sign up for the military enter into a whole different reality. They sacrifice their lives to fight for freedom and for the safety of Americans. Raymond’s life displayed passion for the service and love for his friends and family.
Now when I hear of soldiers dying overseas, I think of Raymond and what their family have been though. It was an honor to tell Raymond’s story.
The video is 20 minutes. Feel free to share your thoughts.
