Today is Memorial Day in the United States.  It’s the day we pause to celebrate those who have died while serving in the armed forces. We also celebrate those who are currently serving. During times of war I think it is important to remember the soldiers who are sacrificing so much to protect the nation.  Our military is under-paid and under-appreciated. 

Even if you have no one in your life currently serving in the military I hope you will take a moment today to pause and acknowledge the selfless sacrifices being made on foriegn soil for your freedom and mine. Sacrafices being made by American soldiers and soldiers from allied nations.  More important, take a moment to pray for peace.
