Memorial weekend offers each of us the opportunity to look back and remember those who came before us.
Our roots may stretch over oceans or may sink deeply into local soil.
No matter where we came from we are blessed by those who blazed the trail for us and helped us become what we are today as individuals and as a people. Our ancestors, our leaders, our prophets all waded through heartache and pain and set standards that we can follow. Their dedication and righteous example light our way as we journey on today.
But the story does not end there. As we walk through our own lives we are creating paths that others can follow as well. We are the creators of trails and testimonies that can strengthen those who follow behind in years to come.
We too can choose to leave a "Heritage of Faith."
