Noon Meeting News – May 30, 2017 – Memorial Scholarship and Educator of the Year Awards

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, like the Grinch, I thought of something I never thought of before. Least we continue our complacent ways. Help us to remember that somewhere out there a man died for us today. As long as there is war,
we must ask and answer, “Are we worth dying for?” What did we do to receive this gift of freedom? The soldier didn’t know us nor we him or her How did the word “freedom” become so powerful? Only by losing it could we find out. A lesson we don’t want to learn. Too many of us vote and then sit on our hands and close our mouths. Being a patriot is more than raising the flag or singing the National Anthem. It’s coming together to do what is best for all and preserve the precepts of our founding Fathers. When we value privilege above principal we will lose both! Our elected officials need our input. We can not just think Optimistically. We need to act Optimistically. Lord, help us do our part for that soldier out there that did his part. Amen!
