Memorial Day 2018 - Sudbury

Memorial Day Sudbury 2018.jpgThis week I was honored to stand with Sudbury's Veterans and their family members as well as hundreds of other Sudbury residents to mark Memorial Day as well as deliver a short Invocation.

Below is the text of the Invocation and the Remarks honoring the sacrifices of those who have enabled us to enjoy the freedoms we do in this country.

Lessons from an encounter on a London Bus

Even within London buses there were some buses that were just a lot more fun, as these buses had an open doorway at the back … Read More »
