Day of Remembrance – the 1848 Revolution

Today the nation of Hungary pauses to remember the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, which grew into a war for independence from Habsburg rule.  Pray that as the people of Hungary think of the heroes and martyrs who fought for freedom, that they will also turn their hearts to the One who came to give true freedom–the kind that can never be taken away.
