Memorial Day 2010 ~ For The Fallen and The Free

In my search for peace, in your search for peace, please take a moment to remember and honor those who defend the freedom we have in this country to speak for peace. I've often heard it said that a soldier prays for peace above all else. I owe a debt of gratitude to those who longed for peace and did what they were called to do to defend and protect - even in times of war. There is no greater love than a man who lays down his life for his friend. I still believe, however, in the one day spoken of below.

"One day we must come to see that peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but that it is a means by which we arrive at that goal. We must pursue peaceful ends through peaceful means." Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968)

Listen to the voices of the peace makers among us.....even as they struggled with very personal issues of their own on the subject of war.
