Thinking about the ultimate sacrifice on Memorial Day

Posted By on May 25, 2020

MemorialDay2020We should probably come up with a better way to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country than a day off work, grilling out and giving momentary lip service?

As I sat on the front porch on Sunday (something I don’t often do), I looked at the half staff flag and did think a little more deeply than usual.

Unfortunately like too many, I rarely take Memorial Day as solemnly as I should. When we really think about it, our liberty came and continues to come at a very high cost. Someone fought and too many died so that we could enjoy freedom and security in America.  I’m sure I’m not along in all too often taking that for granted?

It boggled the mind just how many times men have had to fight to preserve our way of life, yet never came home to see what they have preserved.
