Memorial Day…So much more than a picnic

Those of us who live in freedom owe a debt to those who gave their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, so that we could enjoy the blessings of liberty. There is no way to repay this debt to those who have given so much for us and the cause of liberty here and around the globe–except by honoring their memory and their service; and by preserving their gift in our own day, and for our children down through the generations.

Thank you…

…to all those who gave their lives.
…to all those who gave their health of mind and body.
…to all those serving in the Armed Forces, answering today’s call.
…to all the families whose hearts are sorrowful with loss, or troubled with anxiety for a loved one serving in harm’s way.

You are often in my thoughts and prayers.
