As we go into this Monday, Memorial Day, let us remember those who gave their lives for this country while serving in our Armed Forces.  Many who read this may not have anyone that they knew who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  We have all heard stories and accounts, though, of brave souls who lost their lives in our World Wars, in our war in Vietnam, in the Civil War and other wars. Defending our country. Saying "I will make sure that we are safe against tyranny, aggression and those who look to kill the innocent and the ones who differ from our thoughts. "

Serving one's country is something that is putting your own personal life on hold to protect the lives of others. We honor those who were put down in a hail of bullets, bomb explosions and other forms of aggression. Defending our way of life. 

You have heard political figures speak of a new "war" these days. It's a war against an aggressor, but our bullets, war machines and troops aren't involved in attacks, massing together to overthrow the foe or military procedures. An enemy we can't visually see. 

We have a new "first-line, front line" type of defenders these days. Those that work to stop the spread of the virus, who care for those who are affected by it and look for a cure for the virus. Those who provide our essentials -- the energy we use, the water we drink, the food we consume and the daily interactions we depend on. We are all in this together, and many have also suffered because their way of life and freedoms have been temporarily curtailed because of this threat. 

Those who leave their homes to serve others. There are deaths here, as well. 

Remember the casualties of this horrible pandemic. Who were taken over by it and succumbed. They did not choose to die, they were victims of the fury. 

Someday, when this horrible virus is defeated, I hope days will be set up to honor those who have fallen in this new battle. Keep them in your thoughts as well. They sacrifice so we have essentials. Sometimes, they just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. 

They have paid the ultimate price, too. Let us not forget them. 

Massing together in groups isn't going to defeat this new enemy. Hanging images in effigy isn't going to win this battle. Doing the basic hygienic things that have been outlined by those in the know is the first line of defense. Do your part.  

Do not heed the words of the misinformed: 

Pastor Cliff Christman says that law isn’t relative, and to understand the country’s laws, one should understand Biblical law.  

“This has been one of the biggest shams in world history,” Christman said. “Grown men have been hiding in (their) homes nearly wetting their pants over this invisible enemy that nobody sees. Where is it at? Let it come out and face us. I serve the one true and living God who conquers all enemies. Why should we give our freedom and our liberties up for such fear (and) propaganda and all the garbage that is coming out of Frankfort today?”

These misinformed words are wrong. Has he suffered the effects of this horrible pandemic? Has he lost a friend, a loved one? This thing is real, Mr Christman. 

Stay well,



  1. I am African-American and this offends me greatly. It brings back memories of a dark time in our nation's history. These men need to be brought to justice and prosecuted for this act. When will they ever learn?

    Strong words today, Paulie. Thank you. I have a great-uncle who served and was killed in Germany in WW II. I think of him today.

  3. Hello Friends!

    Arthur here !

    I proudly served in Vietnam and lost friends in combat. I will always remember them. I'm also religious but prayer isn't going to beat this virus. A vaccine and social distancing is.
