AS WE BOW OUR HEADS ON MEMORIAL DAYThis Memorial Day, I offer condolences to the families of those soldiers who lost their lives in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. The sacrifice that you bear is not forgotten by those of us who once wore the uniform. Your sons, daughters, husbands, wives, brothers and sisters will be remembered for their courage. May you and your families find strength and love to get through your loss.I pray that our community honors the memory of your loved ones by teaching our children to support our troops and to value the freedoms we enjoy, including the right to call for peace and question calls for war.I pray for those who continue to fight — that they may do so with a commitment to preserving life rather than to destroying it.Most of all, I pray our government honors the memory of your loved one by bringing their fellow soldiers home as soon as possible.
