Philosopher and essayist George Santayan is believed to have said, "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to relive it." So much for the good old days!
But apparently some of those days weren't so good. This weekend we are observing as a nation Memorial Day, a day set aside to remember the lives of men and women who died while serving in the United States armed forces. It is our affirmation that our service personnel are surrounded in prayer and all return home safely to their families.
