Memorial Day 5-28-18

We may not be able to change the world, but we can always view the world differently. Marv

Memorial Day

Note that the original purpose of this special day was reconciliation. At the end of the Civil War, it was a time for coming together to honor those who had made the ultimate sacrifice. We’d like to see the dual purposes of this day — remembrance and reconciliation — resurrected.

“Loving God, we pray to you for people of every race, religion, language and nation. Help us always to respect and love each other for You have made us all. Let those who have given their lives for the sake of justice, peace and freedom be rewarded by your generous love. May their families and friends, and we who honor them today, remember them with love, now and always. Amen” Rev. Ron Gagne
