Found on the internet:
One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex was staring up at the large plaque that hung in the foyer of the church.
It 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," replied the young man, still focused on the plaque.
"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 trembling and barely audible when he asked, "Which service, the 9:45 or the 11:15?"

I have been studying on and off all week trying to get back in study mode. I have been enjoying it and feel with the winter months coming it will make it much easier to study. I have also rejoined the local library who have had a new building built and because its only half a mile away from home its a great asset for Saturdays.
My son Lee and his family spent Sunday with us for a relaxing day.
