This Memorial Day


Please set aside time this week to pray for the spiritual healing of our nation, wisdom for our leaders and safety for our soldiers fighting overseas.
It is, in a way, an odd thing to honor those who died in defense of our country, in defense of us, in wars afar away. The imagination plays a trick. We see these soldiers in our mind as old and wise. We see them as something like the Founding Fathers, grave and grey haired. But most of them were boys when they died, and they gave up two lives, the one they were living and the one they would have lived. When they died, they gave up their chance to be husbands and fathers and grandfathers. They gave up there chance to be revered old men. They gave up everything for our country, for us. And all we can do is remember.
Ronald Reagan
