Memorial Day

A day to remember all who have served us and are currently serving us in the armed forces of the United States of America.  This day was instituted to honor and remember the participants in our own Civil War where over 600,000 lives were lost.  Today we continue to find cause to send our young men and women into harms way to defend the freedoms we have come to appreciate here in the U. S.

I salute all who have volunteered to serve their country in the combined armed forces of the United States of America.  I pray that we will return to a firm belief in the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus Christ to restore our relationship with God.  I am convinced he brought the United States of America  into existence through miraculous means and has blessed it mightily for a specific purpose.  I pray that we will humbly bow and thank him for his bountiful blessings.

 Out of revolution,
the grip of monarch’s rule.
Driven by freedom.
Founded on values
from God’s holy book,
the glue that binds,
in trust,
its varied masses.


Through fire of war,
was forged in strength
a strong republic.


And though the vision dims
in her prosperity,
she rises to the challenge
when tyrants seek
to quell her voice.


Blessed by God,
we must hold those
values close
that bound
our loose knit colonies
in their infancy.


Dennis Price

Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest. Mark Twain
