Let's remember what this holiday is really about. We all need to take a moment, as we fire up our grills or head to the beach, to just pause, and think and say a little prayer for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let your perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Some moving pictures can be found here.
