IT'S MEMORIAL DAY: HONORING OUR FALLEN & VALIANT SOLDIERS




The Lord says,
"I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me."
Isaiah 49:16

It’s Memorial Day friends and many of us are enjoying picnics, sunning on the beaches, gearing up for the local concerts or just glad that it’s a day away from the daily work grind. The barbeque grills are smoking in our yards with our favorite cuts of meats and lest we not forget those yummy burgers and hot dogs with mutiple salads. But I believe the heart and soul of the day shouldn't be overshadowed with just our picnics. Oh, please don't get me wrong? I do really love the festivities, family and friend's gatherings. But there is great significance in this day! Those that are connected to loved ones in the military truly understand the heartbreak of lossing a loved one serving in the military.
There are many that choose to commemorate Memorial Day in a variety of ways including attending memorial services in a collective manner or with others assembled in sacred gatherings adorning burial sites with flowers, wreathes and plaques honoring the soldiers valor. All of these jestures are in memory of their beloved who’ve died valiantly while serving their country in the United States armed services. I too wish to join in with them as this nation salutes these men and women, who are sons, daughters, mothers, and fathers that gave their lives upholding the democracy of these United States of America.




Here are two very touching accounts from Today MSNBC that honor the lives of these brave individuals. Thank you for visually bringing the point home today of the necessity to celebrate our fallen soldiers. May we never forget them and their precious sacrifice.
