May we take a few moments to reflect, remembering those who served our country well ...
"You gave for peace with courage
That families may be free
So children could grow strong
And safe they'd ever be.
In giving for the sake of peace
You may have suffered loss
Your body may still show its wounds
From taking up the cause.
May remembrance of your time away
Your sacrifice for peace
Spur us on to strive more strongly
For freedom, that there'll be release.
From causes that sent some away
To fight that we may freely live
With gratefulness we thank you, veterans
For all you gave and give!"
Prayer by Susan Helene Kramer
I am remembering our veterans today with heartfelt thanks to all of those men and women who unselfishly fought for our country in the past and the ones who are involved in the turmoil of our world today. May God Bless them all. A special thanks to my brothers who spent several tours of duty in ‘Nam, to my Jim for his time spent in Korea and to all of my friends and relatives who served us in the military. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
