Almost as if Mother Nature wanted to remind us of the brutality that some of our men and women in the Armed Forces went through in their lives, tornadoes and violent thunderstorms have gone through our area today. On Memorial Day, we remember that there have been many who gave up their lives in wars, police actions, and other disputes in order that we might live in freedom. We can never thank them enough and need to live as a people of justice or else their sacrifices will have been in vain.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them!
