“Dedicated To The Unfinished Work?”
When Lincoln dedicated the final resting place for the heroes at Gettysburg he called upon those who survived to be committed to the "unfinished work" that still faced the country. This weekend we honor and remember those who have served our great country throughout history and in our own era. We must hear anew the call to complete the work for which so many have served and sacrificed. This will take more than partisan politics and hate filled speeches. Today's political seasons besmirch the memory of our veterans. Those who served fought for goals that would make a better life for all our people. They could not wait to come home to a better America in which to live and work. Thank you veterans! We must all do better to finish the job that will honor you and your service.
