With Memorial Day upon us, we are a nation at war. If you could give a Memorial Day message, what would it be?
As we observe this solemn day, we must remember all the brave men and women in uniform who gave their lives in the service of our country. Today, we are once again a nation at war — and sadly, the conflict in Iraq seems to have no clear end in sight. We find ourselves locked in fierce debate over the war's legitimacy, with the American people sharply divided between supporters and opponents. This internal strife makes it more difficult to find common ground and observe Memorial Day as a country united.
In the Book of Ecclesiastes, King Solomon states that there is a time for everything and a season for every activity under Heaven. Following this wisdom, my message for the holiday is simple: On this occasion, let us focus on one thing and one thing only — honoring the memory of our fallen.
