Memorial Dat 2015, plus one:

I waited to comment on this Memorial Day until I knew there was something I was supposed to say in addition to the obvious, that we must surely never forget and always be grateful for those who sacrificed ultimately so that the light of liberty, and the God-given gift of freedom would continue on for us, and for our posterity--if we were wise enough to ourselves sacrifice to preserve it. Having heard again the  words of one of our fallen soldiers from World War I read by Pres. Reagan during one of his Memorial Day commemorations, I knew what I needed to say to us in our time. 
We ask ourselves whether our voices or our actions matter, whether one person can make a difference in light of the immensity of the darkness and the evil in this world – an evil that seeks to convert by force, all to its cause, or eliminate those who don’t. The evil we face today is nothing new – it started as a rebellion in Heaven, continued when a lying spirit was entertained in the Perfect Garden, and has been present throughout human history ever since. During this particular commemoration, Reagan read a note penned in the diary of this fallen unsung American hero from a long forgotten Western Front battle field in Europe during WW1, a note under the heading "My Pledge”:
The unsung soldier had written, “America must win this war;  therefore I will work, I will save, I will sacrifice, I will endure.  I will fight cheerfully, and do my utmost as if the issue of the whole struggle depended on me alone…”  
Reagan went on to say that there is no weapon or arsenal in the world as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women — a weapon our adversaries in today’s world do not have. It is a weapon that we as Americans ( Authors note – and particularly as Christians I would add) do have. 
So as I hear of the spread of evil in my day, at home and abroad, an evil that appears in many ways unstoppable, an evil that seems unaffected by my one soul’s voice and my prayers , I have become encouraged by that young fallen hero, reenergized to do my part, with confidence that God uses  our smallest “mustard seeds”, and “a few fish and biscuits”, etc to accomplish His great purposes! 
"Do not keep silent, and do not weary of prayers and acts of goodness”
God bless,
