Today we pause to remember those who have paid the highest sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy. May their sacrifice inspire us to strive to live out the highest aspirations of the noble ideals we so cherish. May we continue to work for liberty and justice for all. And may we seek to be willing to sacrifice for the greater good and pray for those families who will always have an empty chair at their table.
I am reminded that Moses was an extraordinary leader who was willing to risk everything to confront the powers of oppression and injustice and lead the people of Israel from bondage to freedom. May we all be willing to work for freedom, justice and equality.
