Let us Remember Those that have been Forgotten
Memorial Day May 30, 2022
As we bite into our burger and laughter fills the air, let us think back and remember those who are missing from the festivities of the day and dwell for a moment upon their sacrifices on the field of battle so that we may continue to enjoy the freedoms that surround us. Also, allow your mind to focus on the loved ones left behind and the companions who returned from war without their comrades and who, in many cases, witnessed their passing and prayed for God to bless and comfort their families and friends.
Is it too much to ask for the remembrance of one who put their life on the line for you? Shouldn’t they be remembered for the heroism they performed on your behalf? Shouldn’t we lay upon their grave a wreath of flowers born of the colors of the flag they chose to serve? Shouldn’t the red, white, and blue be placed in reverential fashion to honor their actions as protectors of the land they loved? My hope is that these thoughts are foremost in the minds of those who love this nation and what it represents. I pray to God that we always remember that freedom is a gift. Freedom is a treasure that is often easy to take for granted. We should be grateful that there are people who are willing to sacrifice their lives and show by their actions the love that they have for their fellow man. I was blessed to have been in the company of such patriots who returned home wrapped in the flag they so loved. I am honored to have served with them and pray that God will comfort their families and friends on this solemn day. May God grant them peace.
Be safe and know you are loved,
