Memorial Day traditionally symbolizes the end of the school year and the beginning of summer. This week has been busy with school year end state meets, awards, graduation, graduation parties, a birthday and family reunion. Beginnings and endings, a time of building memories!
Memorial Day is also the day we remember all those who have gone before us. Those people who have been our heroes, our mentors, our leaders and who have participated in the formation of our own personal histories. Not remembrance of endings, but those that were our beginnings, who in some way cleared the path for us to be alive, learn, share freedom, and share faith.
