Remembering

Memorial Day–remembering soldiers of wars, French and Indian, Spanish War, Revolutionary War, World Wars I and II, Vietnam, Korea, but what about the Civil War, the war between the North and South? One displays the Southern flag, known as the Confederate, people in some parts feel it is a hatred symbol, which I believe is wrong. It is only a flag used to identify the South from the North’s U.S. flag of stars and stripes before 50 states were added.

So when remembering Memorial Day, it is for all wars, not just World Wars I and II. These people gave their lives in all the wars but God gave His son, Jesus Christ, to save man from sin.
