Memorial Day

As we remember those who died serving our country, the sacrifices of those who currently serve and the veterans whose lives are forever changed by their service, we gain an extra day off in the process.  In the wake of this week’s brutal slaying in the UK we are reminded of what these men and women face daily and how easily we can take that for granted.  So this weekend, say a prayer of thanksgiving for our service men and women, buy a meal for a veteran or a soldier home on leave, encourage that ROTC cadet.  It is a bittersweet occupation, but for those who answer the call and their families, let us pray for them and give thanks for their sacrifices.
