Memorial Day TributeMay 21st, 2014 at Wed, 21st, 2014 at 9:02 am by Rick Schutte
On the last Monday of each May our nation observes a holiday that many now call Memorial Day. Originally given the name “Decoration Day” for the tradition of beautifying the graves of our fallen soldiers, this day commemorates the lives and sacrifices of those who fought and gave the greatest sacrifice they could so that we could live today in freedom. The Bible reminds us that Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. This love of country-this sense of honor and duty-should be reverenced and admired for the calling that these men and women have so admirably given of themselves to fulfill.
Our military servicemen and women are daily placed in harm’s way both at home and abroad, carrying the torch of freedom for America. These freedoms, endowed by our Creator, are kept alive by the bravery and courage of our military forces. What an opportunity we have to celebrate this heritage of freedom.
On This Memorial Day, please remember our military. Pray for their safety. Whenever you see them in uniform, tell them “Thank You.” Let each one know that you appreciate the sacrifice that he or she makes for our nation.
