Memorial Day

Even though we celebrate the holiday on Monday, today is the actual Memorial Day. So let me take this opportunity to thank all of you who serve our country by defending it in honor of those who lost their lives in this service. We are grateful for their sacrifice as well as for your faithful service. Freedom is never free. I don't know if it's something Teddy Roosevelt really said or not, but in the movie "Night at the Museum" Ben Stiller says, "We lost some good men out there." Roosevelt's reply is, "With great victory comes great sacrifice." How true that is. Some lose their lives in defense of the freedom we enjoy. May we honor that sacrifice by serving in our vocations for the betterment of our fellow citizens of our country and the world.
