"To those who have fought for it, freedom has a flavor the protected
will never know." ~Source Unknown~
Memorial Day is meant to honor the members of the United States Military,
especially those brave men and women who made the ultimate and irrevocable sacrifice
for our nation's freedom.
In doing this, we also honor not only those who have served, but also those
currently serving, and especially those still in harm's way.
Someone once said there is no such thing as an unwounded soldier who has
been in a war zone. Not all wounds are visible to the naked eye. There may be no external scars, missing limbs, or other apparent disability;
however, young men and women who have seen combat often bear less obvious but
lasting scars on their minds and their souls.
Today, as we gather with family and friends to picnic, party, and BBQ, bow
your head in prayers and thanksgiving in remembrance of the souls lost so you
may be free.
