For Those Who Gave All for Freedom

Monday, May 28th, 2007

I wish everyone a happy Memorial Day. May we never forget those who gave their lives for freedom. Last week some students and I had the privilege of placing flags by veteran’s graves at the local cemetery. We had some go as far back as the Civil War. It reminded me of the sacrifices many good folks have made for our country.

Eternal Rest grant unto them,
O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.

Here is a quick update about what I am up to

– I am finishing up school. Overall it was a great first year. I really enjoy my job, location, and friends here. Sadly, my interest in getting a PhD is eroding, unless of course some school gets an online one up. I am in the middle of a post-Master’s certificate in religious education though, which I think is practical for what I need.

– I went golfing last week for the first time in over 10 years. Last time was in 1994, and I did really poorly. Now I have my own clubs. I really enjoyed it.

– I have been running about everyday, getting ready for a 5k coming up in June. I have lost about 8 pounds in the process.

– On my Yahoo Music Engine: Bright Eyes, Rick Nelson, Bobby Darin, Badfinger, Jay and the Americans and Townes Van Zandt.

– The wedding is coming up on September 29!

– The weather is warm, and I am getting a tan! It is so nice to be out in the sun after that cold snap in winter. The photo below is a spring sunset photo I took last week.
