Memorial Day 2019
As families and friends come together to enjoy a long weekend on the eve of summer, we stop to remember those who have died defending the cause of freedom near and far. In total, over 1,354,000 soldiers have fallen in service of this worthy cause. And today, as we enjoy the comforts these men and women have purchased with their lives, we pause to honor them and pray for those whom they left behind.
Though there is fervent debate on the necessity of various wars, both current and past, there is no doubt that those who have gone and those who have given that last full measure of devotion, have given of their lifeblood for the cause of liberty. Let’s not make the error of mistaking the soldier for the war, but rather may we always welcome home our warriors with the warm embrace of fellowship and the healing balm of compassion. We, the protected, will never know the true cost paid by those who go.
May your Memorial Day be blessed all the more by the spirit of gratitude for the work of the fallen. May their memory ever live on in the minds of a grateful nation!
