Decoration Day 2009 - updated

God of love and mercy, receive our thanks this day for the men and women who have given their lives in service to our country. Help us to honor them in our work for peace through justice, that people across the globe may live abundant lives freed from the threat of war and violence. In the name of Christ, we pray. Amen.

I added no comments earlier because I really had no words to add. Now I would like to add these (borrowed) comments:

Each and every one of these deaths left a hole in the world. That is why we count them.

They mattered.
