Memorial Day

I sent my students home this weekend, for a three day holiday. But I wanted them to remember WHY they have Monday off. So Monday reads: “Memorial Day holiday. Remember those who have died in this nation’s service in the last 230 years. Remember their families as well.”

I read it to them before they left and asked them to particularly remember those families who have recently lost loved ones in the War on Terror.

I am praying for you, if you are one of those families.

And for those of you who have your loved ones over there still, or who have welcomed them home, I thank you as well.
