Memorial Day - 2011

Since 1868, Decoration Day, has been a day set aside for us to remember and pray for our fallen soldiers.  This day has come to be known as Memorial Day and it is the day we honor all American Soldiers who have died in American conflicts - from the Revolutionary War to the War on Terror.  It is fitting for us to remember that freedom is not free; and we have our freedoms because of the price that they have paid.

Today, throughout the cities, towns, villages and boros of the United States, wreaths have been laid, salutes have been fired, speeches have been made, parades have been marched, Old Glory has been saluted and "Taps" has been played.

It is fitting to take this day to also remember and pray for the living, those who have suffered from injuries, missing limbs, psychological trauma ..... those who may be home, but for them the war has not ended.  And also this is a day to say to all of our Veterans - "Thank you for your honored service - may God continue to bless you and may God continue to bless America".
