Subject: Thoughts about Memorial Day


Most of the time, we go about our day-to-day activities and don’t think a great deal about how fortunate we are. We live in the United States of America – the greatest country the world has ever known. Yes, we have problems (what doesn’t?), but it is still the country in which millions of people from around the world desire to live. It is the land of opportunity, the land of the free and the home of the brave.

It is to those brave men and women who have fought for our freedom that we owe so much. It is they who have ensured that we have the ability to rise from destitution and make something of ourselves. It is they who have provided us with the right to speak freely, to assemble peaceably, and to pursue happiness. From our fight for independence more than two hundred years ago to the World Wars of the twentieth century and the current conflict in the Middle East, those who wear the uniforms of our military have fought to protect us and to allow us to live in peace. Many of them did not return home.

This Memorial Day, as we grill some hamburgers and hot dogs, sip a sudsy beverage, and maybe watch our favorite team play ball, let us remember those who gave their all for our freedom. Let us say a prayer thanking them for their sacrifices, and let us remember to thank those who still serve on our behalf today. To the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, Scottish Rite Masons throughout the country extend our eternal gratitude. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!

William B. Brunk, 33°
