Memorial Day: Honoring Those Who Gave All

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13

Today, we remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in defense of this Country. Today, we honor those who died in service of the United States of America.

To those that grieve, we offer this hope:

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3

“We Shall Keep the Faith”
By Moina Michael
Oh! You who sleep in Flanders fields,
Sleep sweet – to rise anew!
We caught the torch you threw
And holding high, we keep the Faith
With All who died
We cherish, too, the poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led;
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies,
But lends a lustre to the red
Of the flower that blooms above the dead
In Flanders field
And now the Torch and Poppy Red
We wear in honor of our dead
Fear not that ye have died for naught;
We’ll teach the lesson that you wrought
In Flanders field
