Mississippi 332-0900 a thought for memorial Day we decorate the Graves of loved ones on memorial Day. The ceremonies attract some spectators but for the most part we participate by Choice As we Honor our dead with respect and devotions. It is an especially sorrowful Day for the saddened families who suffered loss of loved ones in the armed services. Regardless of age All those who died in conflict died to Young and too Early. They died with eternity in their minds and deep and undying Hope that the rest of us might live in a better world of customs and morality. Periodically we ask ourselves whether their Hopes and deaths were in vain. The answer is an emphatic yes unless we and those with opposing beliefs and systems some Day realize there can be no peace As Long As men have War in their hearts. In our prayers for peace we should contrast in our minds the meaning of his kingdom to the haunting words of Tennyson a your Little systems have their Day they have their Day and cease to worldly systems and customs that Eduse War can be changed Only when people dedicate themselves to god s kingdom a kingdom of peace that knows no War.
