Memorial Day Weekend Message

If you have a political axe to grind, today is the day to set it down. Don’t confuse politics, with considering the profound loss of human life. It’s not about how great the nation is; it is about what those souls lost. It doesn’t matter if they were valiant volunteers, or reluctant and draft coerced. … See More...

Very grounding and gracious words indeed!
My great uncle was with Patton's Army in Germany. Not as a soldier so much but as a photographer for the Army. He shot many great pics like the one of Patton peeing in the Rhine. But he saw so many horrible things he never talked about the war much. You see my Grandfather(his brother) family were German Jews when they came across to USA. So he saw the concentration camps and I'm sure it had to cross his mind several of times if any relatives he didn't know, were there. I know he didn't shoot 45 men but he did shoot history, some good and some terrible. So for anybody who reads this and see Patton peeing in the Rhine thank my uncle Bill Creider

See you when you are back from your time unplugged. :)
Although resistance is sadly necessary in our efforts to preserve what so many have given over the centuries to keep the dream of country of such potential for all. Out of respect for the fallen and their families to day we must keep memories of them first in our hearts, first in our minds.
Such a beautiful reflection Bryant🦋 I have an uncle who served in the war during the Japanese occupation of the Phil. The best that we can do for those brave souls who offered their lives for freedom is to remember and pray for them. It is a privilege to be alive therefore we the living should make the most out of every moment, savor every breath as an honor to those valiant soldiers. Namaste Jenni and Bryant💕 sharing before I unplug😊

This is so very beautiful and so very true. We sometimes loose the meaning of holidays. There is nothing more than the ultimate sacrifice of giving your life. So if we can honor that sacrifice by a special moment or moments of how we are grateful we can be free today because of our fallen heroes. For the so many familes who lost loved ones. this is close to my heart my cousin Michelle Mahoney, he husband John Mahoney is one of our fallen heroes. They were high school sweethearts, he enlisted in the Army at 18. they got married and had their two children Nathan and McKenna while they were in their thirties. He was on his last tour in Afganhastan , two months before he would retire and coming home in August he was killed by a roadside bomb in June, with four others. their children were two and five at the time in 2002. My Aunt and Uncle went to live with them for quite a long time. It is heartbreaking. So yes we should all hug our families tighter be with them as much as we can. send a message that you love them ! It gives honor to all the families and fallen soliders. I always say be kind to each other , show love we can keep building America and do our parts in making the world a better place, it seems such a small sacrifice for the ultimate one. try and keep your blessings and gratitude in your heart on this MEMORIAL DAY AND FOREVER!! GOD BLESS YOU BRYANT AND JENNI!! HAVE A PEACEFUL AND HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!! THANKYOU FOR YOUR GREAT MEMORIAL DAY BLESSING AND REMINDER!!

I am dead against all wars religious fanaticism. deep in heart it hurts me I wonder when this world will be at peace I pray for those souls who lost their life and families affected by this human misery .I pry to all around the world for their well being. Thank you for the post

I pray for the safety of all solders out there fighting for our safety,,may god bless them...Jesus gave his life for us and he is the only one who can give salvation. GOOD-NIGHT EVERYONE!
Djaffar Mohamed
This article is so real and moving! Thank you for sharing it with us! I attest that wearing a uniform whatever its nature (soldier, policeman, security agent, doctor or nurse), is accepting to take responsibilities, accepting to serve body and soul a population and trying one's best to satisfy their needs. This is a heavy burden that puts us to the test especially knowing that it is still not easy to fulfill the needs of the human being. So, a person who willingly sacrifices himself every single to protect, watch over or save lives of thousands people, is someone worthy enough, someone to respect and salute for his/her bravery !!! May God keep blessing us now and forever!!!

A very deep read...πŸ‘...there are plenty of families who can never be happy again n live life the way they used to.. all because of the unwanted dirty wars around the world ... it’s high time our co fellow men realise that they should stop dominating n being greedy for power... let each one be what they are... enough of heart breaks war has offered... the only thing we can do is .. pray to god and ask him to give the families the strength to cope with whatever kind of loss they have endured...amen πŸ™

Rubina fazal Memorial day on this weekend.....💖💐Amen
Diane Greve
I agree, this is the weekend we should all be thankful for all the people who sacrificed their lives so we can remain free in our country.. That's a debt we can never repay and we probably don't even realize how lucky we are in this country to have all the freedoms that we do have. Thank you to all the veterans out there and especially to the families of the ones that didn't make it back home.. God Bless You Everyone!

Thank you your very right

I think of all of my Kin folks that have fought in Wars since 1776, some have been buried in France and Germany...Generation after Generation my family have fought in more ways than armed conflict...They built a college for African Americans in Georgia , ran an Underground railroad in Ohio...Some fought on the side of the Confederacy, the other side fought for the Union. My 4 brothers and I have served. Some damaged by the conflict of War (Agent Orange and Combat) or died from Nuclear Testing in the USA , all for the War efforts, I salute all of the brethren and kinfolks that died for America and those who are walking dead due to agent Orange and Nuclear Testing (Operation , Ranger)...I pray for more knowledgeable leaders, Knowledge of history, I was born during the Hoover Administration...Preventive Maintenance of our country in land, building, Education, stop waiting for catastrophic before responding.

They're never the same after returning from a war zone, I've felt the pain, lived with his pain, and tormented mind, but now he's with the Lord in peace forever and ever. Thanks for your beautiful words.

My brother was a veteran. He passed away last year, at the young age of 58. He had a heart condition. It was expected but still a shock and a suprise to lose him. He had been a homeless veteran for awhile but got the help he needed to get back on his feet. The last few years of his life, I and my daughter staid with him when we went up to the Seattle area. This weekend I will take time to remember him. We had many holiday and family celebrations at his apartment.
Such a wonderfully written tribute to those who served our great country.

Our thoughts are always with the ones who lost their lives during duties in war time and show respect to them and feel for the ones left behind, I think it's important to realise that it will give the men and women a boost in strength still fighting for our country if you agree or not for what they are fighting for. They call it peace duties these days, but it is not X-men or Star wars, It's tough reality and they are on a mission and they have to believe in that mission. It's not the old days of heroes, the good and the bad guys, the nuances are sometimes difficult to find. But they do their duties in the name of us and in the benefit of our peace and feeling for justice. In memory of the ones we lost, say a prayer for the ones still out there so they feel us near and appreciated for still being alive and welcome them home again with respect and a listening ear. It's an evil world out there and we have no idea, I say no idea, what they have to go through unless you experienced it yourself, so listening without judgement is the best you can do for someone and a big hug. God bless you all doing your serving job out there, whatever your mission is you have to accomplish. One day I hope to live in a world of negotiating only, with no young men or women to send to the front line to fight. Trained people with empathy who trust differences and no hard voices to convince their truth with evil powers and over ruling injustice. Sharing my thoughts in peace because my former generation fought for my peace and left their lives for me to be able for my voice to be heard. I wish you all happy holidays in peace to commemorate the ones who left their lives in the fields of hope, for hope is what they gave us to achieve a better world.

One day I hope we move beyond the idea that war is necessary and build bridges to peace through communication not coercion

Heartfelt and we'll written article! It bothers me when I see the articles that describe men and women in the military "who willingly sacrificed their lives in service to our country. ". They might have volunteered to serve, but did not choose to die or be maimed while serving. I believe all who ever fought in any way, whether as a volunteer or draftee, are deserving of the same honor. Thank you all for your service!

Watching my husband suffer and then die from side effects of agent orange he was exposed to in Vietnam was difficult. His life was cut short by it. He was a good man, he made a difference in people’s lives, a trail of good results followed him around.

Nice..Tribute Sir Bryant Mcgill on the Memorial day weekend..❤💐Amen.. .
Nicholas J Cobos
I couldn't agree more with this Bryant, thank you.
Sue Smith
Thank you.
Jo Davis
So much gratitude for this gift of loving words. The hardest holiday of the year for me. It stings. No one really talks about it. However, maybe someone won't feel so alone hearing this? When a loved one goes to war & returns...but returns only half of the dad they once were? Loss comes in many forms. I understand. Beautifully written, Bryant McGill. Thank you! Lifting you up and everyone who longs for peace in their heart and on this planet. ❀
Linda Smith
Please find a place in your heart to remember all our military that gave the most for us all.....their very life. Would, or could we, be so very giving? Look to your inside place, just answer for yourself.....yes, I could be so brave. Or, no, I could never be so brave. Look to your heart for the true answer. Only there do you capture truth. God bless.
