Memorial Day | 31 May 2021

Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Today, we honor all those who have given their lives in the service of God and their country.

Scripture

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.John 15:13

Quote

Situated among the carefully mowed grass, acre upon acre, were markers identifying men, mostly young, who in battle gave their lives. As I let my eyes pass name by name along the many colonnades of honor, tears came easily and without embarrassment. As my eyes filled with tears, my heart swelled with pride. I contemplated the high price of liberty and the costly sacrifice many had been called upon to bear.Thomas S. Monson
