Memorial Day

Many years ago I served and came home. This weekend we remember those who were not able to come home.

Thank you for such a poignant reminder. We owe everything we know and love to so many people we've never met. I am truly grateful.

If you think of it, today maybe pray for the families who have lost loved ones. Also, may we be aware of what is expressed at the end of the Gettysburg Address:

It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
Abraham Lincoln
November 19, 1863
