I hope everyone is having a restful and well deserved long weekend. The weather in New England is fantastic. While you're enjoying a bit of barbeque and time with friends and family, please take a moment to give thanks to the service men and women who have fallen in defense of this country. Heralding the unofficial beginning of summer, Memorial Day is really about honoring those who've made the ultimate sacrifice.
If you are a service man or woman, godspeed. We pray for your safety and a swift return home, especially if you are in harm's way. If you are a civilian, please say a silent prayer for the bravest of our men and women. They are vigilant in their duty to provide the blanket of security we all take for granted.
Say that silent prayer so that we may never have to honor them on this day.
