For he commands his angels with regard to you, to guard you wherever you go.

— Psalm 91:11

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”

The above is from the poem “For the Fallen” which was written by the British poet, Laurence Binyon, in 1914, at the beginning of WWI.

Over 100 years later, there are many throughout the world who lose their lives, in one way or another, defending, serving, and protecting others; ultimately in the name of close held values and beliefs.

Today, in the United States of America, Memorial Day is celebrated in gratitude and in honor of them. It is good to give thanks for the lives of others and their service, to remember them, and to reflect on the values and beliefs that we hold.

In a world that keeps urging me to sprint, my soul whispers slow down. Each time I listen, I am amazed… struck by awe and wonder… how blessed we are.
