A year ago today, 30 students at West Point were injured in varying degrees after a fight broke out on campus.
One cadet suffered a broken nose, one sustained a fractured cheek, and 24 were diagnosed with concussions.
This violent fight wasn't a one-off circumstance. It had actually occurred annually since 2001. One might ask how the Academy could allow this type of fight to continue year after year without stepping in.
The reason: it was a pillow fight. Yes, a fight between cadets swinging pillows.
This is a quick lesson in how the little things have the ability to cause a lot of damage in your marriage.
I continue to be amazed at (and grateful for ) all the positive comments spouses like you are leaving. I'm seeing stories of how people are ready to give up, but are hanging on. I'm reading stories of how spouses have changed, and marriages are being restored. I'm reading stories of how people are re-investigating what the Bible has to say about marriage ... their marriage.
One quality underpins each story I read, and can be the deciding factor of whether a marriage stands or falls: commitment.
