Dear Brethren and Families,
As a child I always looked at memorial day as a day off from school, getting ready to start up the grill and barbecue. To me it was the beginning of summer.
As an adult my thoughts on Memorial Day have changed, I no longer look at it as a day off, waiting for summer to begin. Memorial Day to me is a day of remembering all those brave women and men who fought for our country, and lost their lives in the process. This is what I choose today to honor and remember, and express a gratitude to these brave soldiers.
Today, I also choose to think of the families who lost a loved one, a brave soldier who fought in wars, so that I could have my liberties. To everyone who sacrificed themselves, I say thank you.
Finally I would like to end by quoting from our Brother President Harry S. Truman: "Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices."
As Always Love from the West,
