  1. john 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

  2. God, please, bless all of our brave service personel that have been taken from this life, comfort their families through their grief and loss and please, Lord, watch over those who watch over and protect us from our enemies. God, please bless America again, and guide our leaders to uphold their oaths and abide by our Constitution to bring our county back to prosperity. Amen.

  3. I taught about an hour and a half lesson today at Juvenile Detention, to nine kids who otherwise would not know what Memorial Day is all about. They know now. They need to hear it. I wonder what they’ve been taught at the public schools. Not much, I’m afraid.
