Memorial Day: Remember the Fallen
Remembering the Fallen on Memorial Day
I captured this photograph a few years ago at the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington DC. I thought this might serve us all as a poignant reminder about the true reason for our Memorial Day Holiday Weekend.
While we honor the fallen and those who served for our freedom, let us give pause to a poem written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow written late in the 19th-century:
Jesus Christ proclaimed in John 15:13, “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends“. For those who have demonstrated this “greater love”, we’re thankful. And for those who served to protect our freedoms, we’re also forever grateful.
