A Memorial Day Tribute

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. ~ 1 John 3:16

The picture above is of my grandpa ... he flew during World War II for the Royal British Canadian Air Force. He held one of his best friends in his arms as he died. Years after his tour of duty (not sure how many of them he took), he was decorated with some of the highest honors for bravery that Canada offers to its military heroes. He yet never spoke of the experience and put behind him all the horror of war so that he could live out his life as a good husband, father, and ultimately grandfather before his death in 1991. I still miss him.

Today I dedicate my post that I wrote over at the Homeschool Post to his memory, and also to the life and example of my husband's father who fought in Vietnam.
