EL CAJON, Calif. — Pastor, Bible teacher, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated TV and radio host, Dr. David Jeremiah issues the following statement on Memorial Day:
“One of the great privileges of my life has been to live in proximity of the vibrant military community in San Diego. I know many of America’s bravest men and women quite well. It’s hard to think about the possibility of them losing their lives in efforts to protect my freedom. Many have already done so over the course of my lifetime. This weekend is just one of those sacred moments that I look forward to as a time to say to those who have paid the price for liberty, from the bottom of my heart, ‘Thank you.’
My prayer is that everyone would take a pause from their busy lives and recognize just how blessed we are to be a part of a heritage of courage and sacrifice. May we all remember the loss that was endured to afford the lives we all enjoy today.”
