Memorial Day

May 27, 2008

Our deepest thanks and respect for all you have done for us in the Cause of Freedom.

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who biddest the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep;
Oh, hear us when we cray to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

Mariner’s Hymn

Almighty ruler of the all
Whose power extends to great and small,
Who guides the stars with steadfast law,
Whose least creation fills with awe-
Oh grant Thy mercy and Thy grace
To those who venture into space.

Robert A. Heinlein

(My thanks to Jerry Pournelle who quoted this on jerrypournelle.com.)
