Today is Memorial Day, 2013, a day to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that all of us can be free. Let us never forget them and their sacrifice. And let it always be a reminder to us that freedom is never free. We don't want war, we don't want strife, but sometimes when tyranny raises its ugly head, it is necessary to rid the world of its poison.
God bless the souls of our fallen heroes and take care of them in their home with Thee. Their courage, honor, and sacrifice must serve to make us stronger in our resolve to always keep America a God-fearing and believing nation. Without Thee, Father, we have nothing. With Thee, we have everything, and it will culminate with eternity in our new home with Thee in Heaven.
And comfort and be with the loved ones of all those who died for us: husbands, wives, children, siblings, children, grandchildren and dear friends. Let these survivors be proud of them and cherish them in their hearts forever more.
All Americans, take time to honor our departed heroes today. Go to a parade, fly your flag proudly and play some patriotic music, or just take time to explain to your children what this day means and have a moment of silence for them. And always keep God at the center of these events, for it was He who gave them the strength to do what they did for us.
Happy Memorial Day and God bless America.
