Happy Memorial Day

"Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13

For some Americans, Memorial Day is just a day off work. A day of picnics, parades, and barbecues. But I do ask that you think about the reason for this day....the reason that so many have seemingly forgotten.

Memorial Day is a day to remember the fallen. For so many Americans right now, it's filled with fresh grief. Mothers missing their sons, fathers thinking of daughters they'll never walk down an aisle, children who don't understand why daddies never came home as promised.
Take a moment today to remember these families. Tell them that their hero's sacrifice is remembered.
For those reading this who have lost a loved one in war. . . please accept my condolences. Our nation is what she is because of people like your dear one, and we owe you a debt of gratitude that is impossible to repay.
