Thoughts for Memorial Day

May we see a day when we no longer feel the need to use such weapons.

I always enjoy going to the website gratefulness.org. I found the following there today, and it reminds me of my reflections last night after watching 60 Minutes and listening and observing the effects of our wars upon these women and men who have offered their lives for others.

Today we show our gratitude for life by mourning war’s victims, both military and civilian. Their loss reminds us how terrible war is, and we pledge our lives anew to the mediation, mercy, and compassion which bring about peace.
