Memorial Day brings a pulse where many are in the grief process. There is no proper way to grieve a love one. The best one can hope for is healing and positive memories will outweigh those associated with suffering. In fact, holidays do not stop the loss of life. Many will lose theirs today in a car accident. This show will let the families of people lost while serving their country know our deep appreciation of what they have given to us and how to continue to live with hope after loss.
This self talk Evolved when Greg visited an old friend he had not seen in over 12 months. The podcast is just over eight minutes with Greg sharing a story about a father and his three sons. This Memorial Day segment includes Greg addressing the loss of friends at a time where we remember the fallen. This particular podcast looks at father and son relationships at the earliest stages of life.
It is a typical example that... From The Beginning You... Were. Hear how Greg views the prodigies of his long time friend. This is definitely a story fit for the Heritage & legacy Evolvement Forum
Memorial Day and Veteran's Day often get equated, but there is an essential distinction between the two. Veteran's Day honors all who have served the American military in wars. Memorial Day honors those who've perished. It's an annual reminder that wars have grave human costs, which must be both recognized and minimized.
Those costs are not inevitable. We ought to also set aside time to remember those throughout American history who have tried hardest to reduce them, to prevent unnecessary loss of life both American and foreign: war resisters. Dylan Matthew VOX
Today, I will again lift a pint of ale in memory of my three friends and their comrades who died in Vietnam.
I honor them without honoring the aggressive and unjust war in which they fought.I don't know what their motivation was to join the military, maybe it was simply that the draft gave them no choice, but it really doesn't matter. What I do know for sure is that their lives were unnecessarily cut short. Sam Webb
Same-Sex Marriage is legal in 37 of the 50 United States. It is a definitely controversial issue -for some- that further redefines the word 'family'. Earlier this year a video entitled "Love Has No Labels" was released and went viral. It is a simple statement that has couples of diverse make-ups stand behind a screen that only shows their skeletons. When the couples emerge from behind the screen viewers are amazed to see various degrees of love i.e., gay couples, interracial relationships, different faiths, etc. which showcases that true love has no color, gender, or sexual orientation. I invited Jason and Anthony Henderson-Strong (a couple featured in the video) to be my special guests so we can discuss their road to becoming legally married gay men and new fathers to a wonderful son.

I Remember – Hosted by Craig Sicilia
First off we want to thank all the veterans out there for their service, and our deepest gratitude for all the men and woman who have sacrificed for our freedoms. As a survivor a warrior in this epidemic so hidden that I don’t even know who I am a lot of the time. I remember all the loss of friends and family and especially myself, or at least my old self.
I am this new person who the people I used to love, don’t recognize, I still remember those times, but they have been over shadowed by the destruction of the old me and the pain as I formed this new person. In the realm of things I have learned to like this new me, this more sensitive person who truly cares for people.
And now something new has happened, a type of ptsd from all of the new friends that this new me has made in the last 9 years are dying all around me, the loss that I am feeling in my heart make it that I find myself struggling to care, struggling to go on. As I write this I am not sure I can but am trying. I never allowed myself to develop a person relationship, to fall in love, I would not allow it. Tonight we will explore how to cope with loss, share what we need to do to allow ourselves to love. Allow ourselves to live life again.
Join in let’s see if we can discover how this all works
Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
Please join me Tuesday May 19th at 11 am CST as we continue talking about the Gifts of The Spirit.
Did you know - it was a command to wait for the promise of The Father?
Gathering them together, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, "Which," He said, "you heard of from Me; (Acts 1:4)
for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now." (Acts 1:5)
but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth." (Acts 1:8)
To receive power to be His witnesses..
This is confirmed again in Mark 16 - The Great Commission in His power .
Hope you can join me! Char
