Remembering Today and Forever - MANN

Today is November 11th and at 11:00 o'clock a.m. people will gather in cities, towns and at country crossroads to remember and pray for peace. In our busy world, let's be one of those people who pause to give thanks for the men and women who dedicated their life to freedom and peace.

And may we echo the words of Ed McCurdy in the last verse of his lyrics, "I Had the Strangest Dream":

Last night I had the strangest dream
I ever had before,
I dreamed mankind had all agreed
To put an end to war.
- by Ed McCurdy

Whether you're at your computer, out in the field bringing in corn, doing dishes at the sink - pause, remember the fallen and their families, pray for those serving at this time and those who wait at home, and ask God to work in all our hearts to bring peace to this beloved world. "Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me."

Donna Mann

Thank you for your twinned posts, today. At first I thought they were unrelated, but can see that it's not difficult to forge a relationship between them.
The challenge of hostile nations calls for a significant venturing in order to overcome oppression and gain or maintain freedom for a nation's citizens.
The challenge of changing times and technology also call for this calculated and venturesome spirit.
Great inspiration, Donna.
