Today is Memorial Day. For many it is a day of picnics and revelry, but today is a day for much more than that. We remember those who gave their lives in service and sacrifice. Today we remember the men and women who defended the nation, but in the process lost their lives. Take the time to remember.
This year Memorial Day is different. COVID-19 has altered the way we do things. Normally we would be getting ready to decorate a trailer for a Memorial Day parade in our community and then attend the community Memorial Day Service. All of that has been canceled – what hasn’t been canceled is remembering.
I asked a chaplain friend of ours to put together a Memorial Day message that we could put into a virtual Memorial Day service. Below is the service that will premier at 9 AM. Much thanks to Chaplain Kevin Hovan for his message. Again – today is a day for remembering.
