Just a reminder that Memorial Day was not created so that everyone can shop and the folks who work at the banks get another day off. It was not created so that we could barbecue and open up the swimming pools, although you would never guess that by all the sales and what we observe in our culture.
We need to use this time to remind ourselves of what is really important and of the values that made our country great. A few years ago I was invited to speak at an event put on by the Daughters of the American Revolution to honor our past heroes of Liberty.
It is only due to the courage of those who fought for us, and to God’s providence, that we are where we are today. It is proper for all of us to take the time to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and liberty.
This is one of my favorite videos because it gives us a small glimpse of the struggles others have endured for us and the importance of prayer.

Home Front This Week:
There were over 16 million World War II Veterans. Today only a little over one million are still with us. On this special Memorial Day episode of Home Front, I interview a veteran of both World War II and the Korean War.
He tells us stories of what it was like to be in the Navy back then and what we should know about how to treat our military today.
