This is off topic from my usual postings, but this week a memorial service for one of the Navy Seals killed recently in Afghanistan was held at the church. Three of the men killed in the crash were from our area. One was only 21 years old, the same age as my younger son. I take so many things for granted, especially the freedom we enjoy here. I can't say how grateful I am to those who serve in the military and their families for their sacrifices. The Bible verse on the cover below is John 15:13: "Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends."
