Honor and Remember
Monday May 30 is Memorial Day, and the Light and Champion offices will be closed in observance. We hope you have a wonderful long holiday weekend with family and friends.
It’s also our hope that we, as a nation, never forget the reason for a day of remembrance for those who died in service to our country. Should we ever take lightly that price paid by some, we will find ourselves in the position that President Ronald Reagan reminded of not that many years ago.
“But freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. The only way they can inherit the freedom we have known is if we fight for it, protect it, defend it and then hand it to them with the well-thought lessons of how they in their lifetime must do the same. And if you and I don’t do this, then you and I may well spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it once was like in America when men were free.”
Have a safe and happy holiday … and never forget.
