"A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself"-Joseph Campbell
It has been noted that in time of peace sons bury their fathers but in times of war, fathers bury their sons. As we celebrate this Memorial Day with friends and family, remind your children what this day is all about. In a word, sacrifice. So many have given so much so that all of us can live in a free nation. None of this would be possible without them.
We pray that those who gave their lives and who suffered in battle, find peace for all time. To all who have served our nation, a simple thank you cannot adequately express our gratitude and appreciation for your service.North Greenbush has many patriots from many wars. We thank you. Have a blessed Memorial Day.
