Memorial Day

On Memorial Day we give thanks to the brave men and women of our armed forces who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our great nation.

Too often we take for granted the rights and privileges that we enjoy in this country. It is important that we always remember those who fought bravely not only so that we may continue to live freely, but so that others may live freely as well.

This Memorial Day I join you all in giving thanks for the many blessings of freedom and peace that these courageous individuals have afforded us. And I pray for the families of the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our way of life.
