I thank all who have served, still serving and will serve.    Special thanks to those that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our Country.

Remember, Memorial day isn’t about cook outs and a day at the shore or the pool(nor is it about the guy the currently lives in the White House),  it is about this:

Memorial Day Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, With a sober heart we come before you this Memorial Day. We pause for a moment and call to mind all the men and women who have died in the service of our nation since 1776. Dear God, please look with mercy on our brave and selfless brothers and sisters, who did not shirk from their task but gave themselves completely to the cause of defending and protecting us all. Bless all who have given their lives for the sake of liberty, and grant them eternal rest with You. We remember also our brave men and women now serving in our armed forces, both home and abroad. Dear God, send out Your angels to protect them all. Help them discharge their duties honorably and well. Please bring them safely home to their families and loved ones. Please bring Your peace and mercy to our troubled world. We ask this, Father in the name of Jesus, Your Son, Amen

Thanks Warb. Seems the meaning of this day is lost on most people today. Fireworks, baseball players dressed as soldiers, etc.

Every citizen of the USA should consciously enjoy every freedom you have today.
I hope you are all able to get together with your friends and family and have a good time. Many men and women have sacrificed their lives so that we can live comfortably. Be thankful for that and enjoy the freedoms they have made affordable.
