MEMORIAL DAY- More Than Just a 3 Day Weekend


I love this picture by an excellent photographer. It captures what I feel when it come to this weekend.

Everyone who has ever given their life for the “Land of the Free and The Home Of The Brave” is worthy of my honor…and yours.

I hope you will honor those who lost someone with a phone call, a knock on the door, a spoken word, or a written “Thank You” in some way over the next several days.

Memorial Day is more than the launching pad for summer. It is the finishing point of destiny for those who gave their lives so we could live ours. The words of President Abraham Lincoln are as fitting and motivating for us today as they were over 150 years ago when he spoke them over the brothers on both sides of a civil war:

“It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
