Week Ending Sunday, May 27, 2018
We hold certain truths to be self-evident. One of those is this: "Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends." Our Lord paid the ultimate price for all of us on this earth, past, present and future. We didn't ask him to but he did and when we found out the reason, we were saved from fates worse than death in our belief.
When we ask a soldier to pick up a weapon and stand between us and violence we are asking him/her to show great love and keep us from the harm that could befall us. And mostly, they do.
There is little anyone can say to the Lord or to the brothers and sisters who have fallen on our behalf except, Thank You for your sacrifice. We give thanks everyday for blessings and hopefully, this is one of those thank-you's that go out to the Father each day in our prayers.
Even so, there is more we can do. We have set aside a day for those who have fallen and we take the time on that day to thank each fallen hero specifically for their sacrifices. It is Memorial Day, a day we hold in reverence for those who showed us the greatest love of all. It is after the fact, as so many thanks are, but it is our meager way of paying tribute and honor to all who have put themselves in harm's way and paid the ultimate price.
