Would Jesus Celebrate Memorial Day?

I hope you are not mourning the loss of a beloved soldier on this Memorial Day weekend. If you are, I mourn with you.

I hope you are not honoring anyone who chose to fight in America's military. I cannot join you in bestowing such honor.

I reserve honor for those who have chosen not to fight.

If you are grieving, you may want to bookmark that webpage for another day. (Then again, you may want to use that webpage to transform your grief into indignation and action.)

If you are relaxing, partying, or enjoying a day off during this traditional beginning-of-Summer weekend, unplug the TV and take an hour to read that webpage.

Then ask that simple question: WWJD?
