GRIN AND SHARE IT: “The Memorial”

The Memorial

One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex was staring up
at the large plaque that hung in the foyer of the church. The
plaque was covered with names, and small American flags were mounted on
either side of it.

The seven-year old had been staring at the plaque for some time,
so the pastor walked up, stood beside the boy, and said quietly,
“Good morning Alex.” “Good morning pastor,” replied the young man,
still focused on the plaque.

“Pastor McGhee, what is this?” Alex asked. “Well, son, it’s a
memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service.”
Soberly, they stood together, staring at the large plaque. Little Alex’s
voice was barely audible when he asked, “Which service, the 9:00
o’clock or the 11:00 o’clock?”
