On this Memorial Day 2008 I ask that as you bar-b-que or swim or shop - however it is that you choose to celebrate please take a moment to observe what today really is. It is a day to honor the heroes of our country who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Say a prayer of thanksgiving for their service. Pray for their families. Pray for those who are currently serving at home and abroad. Remember we live in the home of the free because of the brave.
"Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices."
President Harry S. Truman
My prayer: Thank you for the fallen heroes who we remember and honor today. Mostly thank you for the consolation of Your Word especially for their families. Thank you for the selfless men and women who have served and are serving our country. Please continue to watch over them and their families. Amen.
