Memorial Day 2021

May 31, 2021

We’ve recently experienced the temporary loss of some of our freedoms due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.  Let this experience of the loss, be a lesson and reminder, as to just how precious our freedom is.  May it give us a deeper appreciation of freedom.

This year, let it serve as a reminder to be grateful for all of our freedoms which we often take for granted.  So on this Memorial Day, let’s add an extra dose of grateful to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for us.

As we exercise our freedoms, without which we couldn’t enjoy the activities of this day, without which you couldn’t climb your mountain and be you, let us take a moment to honor and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice to attain and preserve our precious gift of freedom.  In cherishing their memory, we remember to cherish our freedom.

The fallen understood this:

“Liberty is one of the most precious gifts heaven has bestowed upon man. No treasures the earth contains or the sea conceals can be compared to it. For liberty one can rightfully risk one’s life”. —Don Quixote

“When you know what you are willing to die for, then you will know what to live for”. — Jewish saying

Certainly something to be grateful for

 Be Good Do Good Think Good

    Thank you for this inspiring message Fred! A day to remember those courageous men and women who fought and died for our freedom. My father was born on this day and proudly served in World War II, so this day holds a special, personal meaning. Thanks to those who continue to serve so we may enjoy our precious freedom!
