Memorial Day

It's Memorial Day and I hope we will all take time to remember our freedom isn't free. This veteran's testimony is still one of my favorites. I've posted it before, but in case you haven't seen it I wanted to do it again. Charles Durning, popular American character actor, recounts his experience during the Normandy Invasion (June 6, 1944). It is a powerful reminder of the sacrifices made by so many Americans for our freedom. May we never forget them, and may we live lives that honor them...lives that refuse to bow to our own selfishness, and rise to serve the greater good.

Our government is asking all Americans for pause at 3:00 p.m. today for a National Moment of Remembrance. Find out more here:
