Remember Those Today

In Loving Memory
On every soldier’s tombstone
should be a message of honor, respect and love:
"In loving memory
of one who loved his country,
who fought against evil
to preserve what is right and true and good.
In loving memory
of one who is a cut above the rest of us,
who had the surpassing courage,
the uncommon strength,
to do whatever had to be done,
persevering through hardship and pain.
In loving memory
of one who was brave enough
to give his life, his all,
so that those he cared about
would remain safe and free.
In loving memory
of a unique and treasured soldier
who will never be forgotten."
By Joanna Fuchs

Though Memorial Day has become a day of getting caught up with yard work, family picnics, and an extension of a long weekend, I ask that you take a few minutes today, with your family, to remember the 2,500,000 U.S. Soldiers that have died or been wounded in battle for our country, beginning with the Revolutionary War.

Thank you
