Memorial Day 2013
This weekend is Memorial Day weekend in the United States. Originally the day was known as “Decoration Day”, when families would decorate the graves of their husbands, fathers, uncles, sons, brothers and nephews who died in battle.
Today the holiday weekend has become known as the “unofficial start of summer”, and like everything else has taken on more of a secular connotation. Please take time from your busy weekend, in the midst of your cookout, party, ballgame, travel, or whatever to say a prayer and remember all those who made “the ultimate sacrifice”.
Amen,please remember; All gave some, some gave all. Thanks to all who serve, past, present and future.
