Lest We Forget.....

PostBy: mikeandgerry On: Mon May 25, 2009 2:14 pm

The Great War and World War II have all but faded into history but we cannot fail to recall the sacrifices of so many Americans who answered their nation's call to arms. Theirs was an era of great hardship and suffering but their sense of duty preserved freedom for America and our allies.

In tribute to fallen heroes, take a moment to review this link to the American Battle Monuments Commission. There is a short video for each of these impressive cemetaries and monuments. Click on "cemetaries", select one, and navigate to the video.

I am always amazed and many times reflect on those who gave their lives for this great country of ours. It is a shame that so many people just look at this holiday as another day off work. These dedicated young men and women were selfless in their dedication and love for our freedoms. I think that is why my heart sinks when I see so many of those freedoms being given away to government these days. I personally feel a huge debt of gratitude to each and every one of those fine people who served our country and gave the ultimate. We should take the time to teach our young people to honor those heros. If we do not then history is sure to repeat itself.

Yes, good point. That point is stressed in our church the Sunday before Memorial Day, and the Sunday before Veterans Day. The pastor has a special sermon for the young people, recognizing those who served in the armed forces, past and present. All of us who served are asked to stand up so the kids can ask questions. Its a very positive time for the kids, and I think for the adults too.
