This weekend is more than simply a time to gather with family . . . it is a time in which we pause with those we love and offer thanks to God for the people that gave the last full measure of devotion. We are able to worship the God we wish, live as we like, work where we want, vote for our leaders, disagree on politics and policies, and educate ourselves on our own terms because someone stood in harm’s way for you and for me. We should never forget this. Don’t let this day end and not have offered a prayer for those families that didn’t grow up with a father or mother because of this sacrificial act. Better yet, attend your church this morning and do so. AND, thank a soldier or family of a soldier who continue to serve in our name. We may all have different opinions about the wars we broker but we should never waver in our support of our military personnel and their loved ones.
