"There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven...A time to kill and a time to heal; A time to tear down and a time to build up...A time to love and a time to hate; A time for war and a time for peace" (Ecclesiastes 3:1,3,8, NASB).
In honor of Memorial Day this year, I would like to share two articles.

Our Need to Remember by Phil Ware reminds us of our need to honor those who serve to protect innocent people. It may be read at http://www.heartlight.org/articles/200705/20070528_remember.html.
