Memorial Day Thoughts

May 25th, 2018

A memorial at Pearl Harbor references a poem that first lady Eleanor Roosevelt kept in her wallet during WWII.

 

“Dear Lord,

Lest I continue my complacent way, help me to remember somehow out there a man died for me today.  As long as there be war, I then must ask and answer Am I worth dying for?”

 

This Memorial weekend take time to pause, stand still, and remember the men and women that have given the ultimate sacrifice for country, family, friends and for those that stood beside them.  Remember the Gold Star Families, the loved ones left behind that hear their voices and see their faces in their memories.  A father or mother, brother or sister, son or daughter, that gave of themselves in time of war and peace.  A time to reflect and time to honor those that gave their all.  Join me this Memorial Day by attending a memorial service in your town, or wherever you may be to remember, reflect and honor those that gave their all.

 

Have a safe summer and Memorial Day Weekend.
