Memorial Day 2019

Memorial Day“When soldiers go to war, they don’t fight because they hate what is in front of them, they fight because they love what is behind them.” ~G.K Chesterton

Words can not express our profound gratitude to those who fought and died for our freedoms.

For those who are true to the traditions of the day, flags should be flown at half-staff until noon on Memorial Day. All Americans are encouraged to pause for a National Moment of Remembrance at 3pm local time.

This is a time to teach your children, to pass on the traditions of honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice that has afforded us the freedoms and the opportunity for those barbecues on this Day.

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life
for his friends.” John 15:13

Memorial Day commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle. In other words, the purpose of Memorial Day is to memorialize the veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.  We spend time remembering those who lost their lives and could not come home, reflecting on their service and why we have the luxury and freedom that we enjoy today. We might consider how we can support and safeguard their grieving families and loved ones who are left behind.
