Remembering the Fallen

It is too easy to forget that we live in the greatest country Mankind has ever known. There are many reasons this is so, but among the essential ones is that men and women were willing to give their lives to sustain and preserve our Republic.

Today, I urge you to start a new tradition in your family. Maybe you could put flowers on the grave of a service member. Maybe you could visit a county seat that has a monument to those who gave their all and say a prayer for their families. Perhaps you could write a letter to a service member you know who is currently in the field.

Traditions can lead us astray when they become the end in themselves rather than a guide to help us in balanced and right living. But on the whole, Americans are tradition-poor rather than tradition-bound. We could benefit from more family tradition. Our circumstances may not be changed by observance, but our attitude about them will be.

Many have paid the ultimate price, but the dream of Liberty has been preserved unto our generation. Happy Memorial Day as we honor our Victorious Fallen.

We went to a National Cemetary today and were amazed at how many tombs were marked "Unknown Soldier". Each of these markers had a cross embossed on the top. No doubt the ACLU would object to taxpayer dollars being used for such in this day and age- so determined are they to blot out the religion that produced the world-view that birthed America.
