Next Monday is Memorial Day. Whatever our view of war, we pause to pay tribute to those who fought for freedom and paid the ultimate sacrifice. How do we honor our fallen heroes? First, by thanking God for their faithfulness and sacrifice. Second, if you know someone who died in service, why not thank their family? By phone, e-mail, letter, or in person express your appreciation.
Too often we forget the families of those who gave their lives seeking to protect our freedom. A word of appreciation from you might ease the grief that they feel on this Memorial Day. Knowing that you remember brings comfort. You might also place flowers on a grave or do some other memorial act that says, I remember and I’m grateful.
