Good morning friends. On the second day of this Memorial Day weekend 2014 we again pay tribute to those souls lost in battles. We also give full recognition to the honor and dignity displayed by all those brave souls still among us.

We add to those our feelings. We add love you cannot see, and we know that you too have more of the same which we also cannot see. Though sometimes, it's as if we can. It's an inner sight we can feel, and it stirs in us that which makes us humans created by God in His own image.
