Sacrifice is a simple but powerful word. A person has to be willing to give up something of importance. It is not true sacrifice if it does not leave a person absent of something. If you lay down over a child to protect it from the raging attack of a pitbull at the risk of life or limb that is sacrifice. When a soldier in combat takes a bullet for his fellow soldier that is sacrifice. It does not even have to be as drastic as maybe losing life but taking several hours a week to teach a struggling child to read. Mentoring a young man or woman on how to make better choices is a sacrifice of time and resources. Sacrifice is a simple word that is easy to spell and define but giving life and effort to it is a different beast indeed.
