"Memorial Day is a holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in our armed forces!"
If we forget the reason we have a "Memorial Day" each year then our men and women in the armed forces have died in vain!! Please make sure your children know the purpose of this day. The ultimate sacrifice given by the men and women in the armed forces allow us to enjoy the freedoms we have today!! They have passed from this life as we know it into eternity and are not here to speak for themselves so we must speak on their behalf. If their dedication to the service of this country was so passionate that they died for it then surely we can live with the same dedication to keep this country great. In the Old Testament the Prophets of God spoke directly to the leaders of their country and so should we today! The Church of the living God is a powerful force to be reckoned with when it stands hand in hand but we have been brainwashed into thinking we shouldn't speak out so we sit in silence. I personally think we need to stand up and speak up or our warriors have given their lives for no reason. It is up to us to make sure that the United States of America stays on the course that our forefathers intended in its inception. The amount of blood shed to begin and protect this country is unfathomable. Please remember the sacrifice required to keep America free and we need to take a close look at where our present leaders are taking us!! Pray for the families that are hurting today due to the death of a loved one in service of our country. May God Bless America!!!
