Memorial Day 2013

God bless those heroes that have given everything for the ideal of freedom!“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers” (1 John 3:16).

In Flanders Fields
John McCrae, 1915. (emphasis added)

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Take the torch! Hold it high! Don’t break faith with those that have given all! Please follow these links and learn more… then take a stand: Molon Labe!

“Brethren, we came to this country to practice our religious liberties, and if we don’t get involved, we’re going to lose them.”
