Have A Blessed Memorial Day Weekend!

Bookmark and Share
As friends and families gather together in America this weekend to celebrate Memorial Day, let us hold dear the meaning of this special occasion. The time that we enjoy, to live freely in a land of plenty, came at the expense of countless lives laid down on the battlefield of liberty's struggle. Without that sacrifice at the altar of freedom, we could not have what we today enjoy.

God bless the souls of those who laid down their lives for our liberty and let the Lord look after the souls to come of those who shall perish battling that Your will be done to bring freedom to all mankind.

Let us be reminded that the struggle for freedom is not yet done. To the contrary, the greatest, most trying stage of the conflict lies directly ahead.

From the East a tempest approaches that will destroy America, and lay siege to the altar of freedom. The world will be confronted with a stark submit to the tyrants who deceived and then destroyed the free world or to resist the enemies of liberty at all costs.

For those who are ready to wage the latter battle, I stand ready to lead the charge...

TURNING and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.

- William Butler Yeats
