      In memory of the men and women who exemplified the teachings of Christ by unselfishly giving their lives in responding to their brothers and sisters in dire need. Jn 15:12-13, This is my commandment: love another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

    Since that dreadful day in 2001, I have watched several young graduates from 4 area High school enlist in our Military. These young men and women deserve our respect and thanks for the freedom that we benefit from daily. God Bless them All!

    We visited this spectacular field this weekend after dark. I cannot describe the feeling I had while walking and praying through the rows of flags. It was amazing. I purchased a flag to Honor Flight 93 Heroes.

    Thank you for doing this. I wish it wouldn’t be taken down.
