Today we pause to reflect upon the devastating bombing of Pearl Harbor. Have you stopped to consider the word "remember" and the significance this word plays in our lives?
As a nation, we honor the lives of those lost. As families, we remember the spirit of giving, love, and service that accompanies this time of year. Sometimes it is easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of life, especially during the busyness that accompanies the holiday season.
May we each take a few moments today to reflect upon the freedoms and blessings that we enjoy because of the ultimate sacrifice given by so many throughout this world's history.
"Remember" is a word that changes the future. When we remember why we have the freedoms we do today, we work harder to preserve them for the future generations.
We hope today, and especially throughout the remainder of the month each of you remember and reflect upon the goodness of the world around you. Sure, problems abound everywhere, but in the quiet acts of service, goodness pervades society and therein lies true peace.
