Remembering the Fallen

Today we remember. We remember those who gave their lives for our country.

We remember men and women who volunteered or were drafted to serve.

People who gave their lives in service of their country.

How can we as a country say thank you to those who gave their lives? To their family left incomplete?

We can stop fighting each other.

Stop measuring our worth on color of skin, religious affiliation, or educational level.

Agree to disagree, compromise – which means give and take, not demand and pillage.

Let us give grace to each other understanding that everyone has a story, a secret pain, a broken dream.

May we be hard workers who seek to build up our country and not tear it down.

So may we never forget those who died that we may live free.

And may kindness be the way we honor the dead.
