Memorial Day - Five Minutes for Faith
Many of us will celebrate Memorial Day today with a cookout, picnic or parade. Kids are excited because it marks the end of school. Adults are excited because it usually means a day off work. But many have lost sight of what Memorial Day actually means. Originally called Decoration Day, it is a day to honor and remember those who have died in our nation’s service. It is a day to celebrate those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
Many have family members who have served or are currently serving in our armed forces. I’m sure there are many stories that could be told to honor them. Today, I would like to share with you a story about one of my family members, Pfc Toby Braveboy from Coward, South Carolina – a brave boy from Coward.
