Memorial Day is more than picnics and cookouts. It is a time for all Americans to pay tribute to those who have gone to war to fight for our freedom.
- And today, more than ever before, we must thank those who give their lives to keep us safe and free.
Please take a moment today to remember those who have lost their lives for our country. And give some thought about how you can help those who have gone to war and come home injured from the violence of war. There are many ways to contribute to the organizations that help the veterans of our country. Time, money, and prayer are just a few.
I pray that each and everyone of you has a great Memorial Day with family and friends, keeping in mind the reason for this holiday. And a heartfelt thank you to all the women and men who have served to make me and others safe in this land that we love.
