honoring the fallen

the funeral parade just passed by the church only a few minutes ago for Nick Patterson. I never knew him very well, even though he was a grade above me in school. Still, though, it is hard not to cry for those who have given their lives to preserve ours. The patriot riders who came, probably more than 50, made tears well up. To think that some would think it ok to protest the war at such a time is unbelievable to me.

There have been two from Rochester in just over a year that have given their lives in Iraq. May God be glorified somehow. May he show us the power of his mighty.

My heart goes to all those who have lost someone in battle.
