A Memorial Day thought for 2012

I am not going to take too much time here.  I simply want to remind you that Memorial Day is here once again.  A day when many celebrate the start of the summer.  A time of picnics and barbeques.  And there is nothing wrong with this, so enjoy your celebration.

But somewhere in the midst, stop and take time to think of those who paid the ultimate price to allow us to enjoy these blessings.  Those who gave their lives for people they never knew.

So let us take a moment of silence to remember those we can never thank.  And let us honor their sacrifice by remembering to thank those we still can, for their service.
