“Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.” (John 12:24)
On an earlier Memorial Day, Tammy wrote us the following:
My dad and all but one of his brothers served. My mom’s two older brothers were drafted. The oldest volunteered. One died at Normandy. One died at the Battle of the Bulge. After a year of red tape, Mom’s oldest brother was allowed to go home. Sadly, because of PTSD, he took up drinking, and it killed him shortly after returning home. War? I hate it. Necessary? Yes it is. A day doesn’t go by that I don’t think of my sweet uncles waiting for all of us at the pearly gates.
God bless our troops. God bless America. My hope is that everyone remembers why we have this three day weekend.
Tammy, thank you for helping us remember why.
