"In circumstances dark as these, it becomes us, as Men and Christians, to reflect that, whilst every prudent Measure should be taken to ward off the impending Judgements....All confidence must be withheld from the Means we use; and reposed only on that GOD who rules in the Armies of Heaven, and without whose Blessing the best human Counsels are but Foolishness--and all created Power Vanity”. John Hancock

Memorial Day Notes

Well, another Memorial Day has past. I hope you were able to devote at least a little time in remembrance of those who died in the service of this country.

Although the services are done, our job at Focus on Veterans is still far from over. Once again we put flags out at the local cemeteries in the Brookfield area. As I have said before, this is the most time consuming and labor intensive of all our projects but at the same time it is the most rewarding! When I think of the sacrifices made by our veterans, a few hours a year to place a flag on their graves is the very least I can do to show my appreciation.

Now, in a day or two we will go back out to retrieve those flags so they can be counted, sorted and put away for use again next year. So as you can see, we still have several hours of work left to us before we can call “Mission Complete” on another Memorial Day.

As I have said before, we pick up these flags so they will stay in good condition and will last several years. If we pick up a flag that you wanted left on a grave please give me a call and we will make sure it gets put back.

Speaking of our Cemetery Flag Project, I really look forward to doing this each year. I have to admit that I am not as young as I used to be and after several rows of placing flags I really start to feel my age!

Yet, I am very particular about this project and will continue to do this as long as God allows me to!

 We have been doing this since May 2000. After years of reading the names and inscriptions on the stones and markers, these have become more than just a name on a stone.

I see them for who they really are. They were sons, fathers and brothers. They were folks we knew and loved. Some gave their lives in defense of this country. Others served then came home to live out their lives raising a family or whatever God may have led them to.

They deserve to be honored and remembered not one day a year but everyday! My children help with this project and each year I explain to them that they should look at this as an honor and a privilege.

My goal, my prayer is that our youth will learn as much as they can about our veterans and thus gain a great appreciation for what they have done.

Pray for our country and our leaders. May God give them wisdom...they sure need it! Remember those who made our freedoms possible. Have you hugged a veteran today?

As always, I am for God, duty, honor and country.

에볼루션카지노코리아


오는 26~28일로 예고된 의료계 2차
에볼루션카지노 가 예정대로 진행될 것으로 보인다. 에볼루션코리아토토사이트가 의대 정원 확대 문제로 갈등을 해소하고자 사설토토꽁머니 만남이 양측의 이견차이로 파행됐다.

의협 측은 바카라사이트와의 긴급간담회에서 의대정원 확대 등 4대 의료정책의 철회가 불가능하다는 사설토토를 확인된 만큼 제 2차 총파업을 예정대로 진행하겠다"고 19일 밝혔다.

이날메이저토토사이트와 의협은 서울 중구 에볼루션게이밍서 간담회를 가졌다. 이 간담회는 전날 의협이 안전놀이터로 공문을 보내 의협회장과 복지부 장관이 함께 참여하는 의-정 긴급 간담회를 제안해 이뤄졌다. 간담회에는 박능후 장관, 최대집 회장을 비롯해 박지현 대한전공의협의회(대전협) 회장 등이 참석했다. 토토사이트코드토토사이트추천이 마주앉은 것은 지난달 23일 의대 정원 확대 방안을 발표하고 의협이 반대 의견을 낸 지 27일 만이다.

앞서 온라인바카라사이트는 의대 정원을 2022년부터 최대 400명 늘려 10년간 한시적으로 4000명의 의사를 추가 육성하는 정책을 발표했다. 먹튀검증 은 지방에서 10년간 안전메이저토토사이트 로 복무하는 지역의사로 두고 나머지는 특수전문 분야에 집중하는 인력으로 양성한다는 계획이다. 안전놀이터검증하기 인해 의협 등 각 의료계 단체들은 반발했고 전공의들로 구성된 대전협은 지난 7일, 의협은 지난 14일 하루 동안 집단휴진을 진행했다.
