Lessons from the 1940s - Remember

On Memorial Day, we remember those who gave their lives in defense of our country.

We live in freedom because they fought tyranny.
We live without fear because they faced danger.
We live in comfort because they gave up all comforts.
We live because of their sacrifices.

Let's never take these gifts for granted. They were purchased at high cost.

Over 1 million Americans have given their lives in war (Source: English, June A., Jones, Thomas D., Scholastic Encyclopedia of the United States at War, New York NY: Scholastic Reference, 1998).
On this Memorial Day, take a moment to remember. And take a moment to thank God for freedom and life.
