Thank You, and God Bless

Today is Memorial Day. I wish I had something profound to say, but I don’t.

I am speechless when I think of the tens of thousands who spilled their blood and lost their lives so that you and I won't have spill ours and still continue to live freely.

There are no words to adequately express my profound gratitude.

All I can say, to the families who now have empty places in their homes and hearts, thank you. I am grateful to the very core of my being for you and those taken from you.

Day is done, gone the sun
From the lakes, from the hills, from the sky
All is well, safely rest
God is nigh.
Fading light dims the sight
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright
From afar, drawing near
Falls the night.
Thanks and praise for our days
Neath the sun, neath the stars, neath the sky
As we go, this we know
God is nigh.
