Memorial Day

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man
lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13
 


"The Land of the Free, and the Home of the Brave."



I am so grateful for all those who have given their lives for this country.
 


"On Memorial Day, America’s thoughts go to the courageous men and women of the United States Armed Forces who gave their lives for the country they love. They defended our Nation, liberated the oppressed, and served the cause of liberty. Every moment we live in freedom was secured by their sacrifice, and every American is in their debt. We can never repay what they gave for this country, but on this holiday, we acknowledge that debt by showing our respect and gratitude."  George W. Bush
