This close to our nation's capital, the emphasis on Memorial Day is not as much about cooking out or starting the summer. It is about remembering the fallen heroes who have fought for our country.
There were lots and lots of events from the President laying the wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldiers to Rolling Thunder. All were totally appropriate as was the prayers we offered during church on Sunday to remember those fallen heroes and those serving in our country.
Let us not forget to also pray for peace in our time.
