Memorial Day

Today is a day to remember those men and women who sacrificed their lives for our freedom.  These brave men and women left the comfort of home, secure jobs, and their precious families and went to war against those countries who wanted to rule us and take away our freedom.

Our nation is rich with individuals who secured our freedom.  Our founding fathers fought against their homeland England in order to establish America.  One aspect of the Civil War was the fact that all men are created equal and should be free.  The World Wars continued to protect our nation against the enemy.  Today, our service men and women fight an enemy who does not fight in a traditional way but through terrorism.  Countless people have given their lives for our precious freedom.

As we go off to our family gatherings, spend time at the lake or whatever you Memorial Day tradition might be, take time to pause and thank God for these selfless individuals who died for our freedom.  Also, if you should see a military person or have a veteran in your family, tell them thank you for their service.
