Freedom Rally June 1 in front of the courthouse

NORTHSIDE NEWS — Memorial Day

The bugle echoes shrill and sweet,

But not of war it sings today.

The road is rhythmic with the feet

Of men-at-war who come to pray,

The rose blossom white and red

On tombs where weary soldiers lie;

Flags wave above the honored dead

And martial music cleans the sky

Above their wreath-strewn gravel we kneel,

They kept the faith and fought the fight.

Through flying lead and crimson steel

They plunged for freedom and the Right.

May we, their grateful children, learn?

Their strength, who lie beneath the sod,

Who went through fire and death to earn?

At last the accolade of God.

In shining rank or rank arrayed

They march, the legions as of the Lord;

He their Captain unafraid,

The Prince of Peace … who brought a sword.

Joyce Kilmer

Observance of Memorial Day began after the Civil War, but the poet Joyce Kilmer wrote these lines as he served in another great conflict, World War I. His words were more than poetic, they were just and honorable. Kilmer is best known for writing “I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree.” He was killed in the Second Battle of the Marne.

Trinity Missionary Baptist Church, Cliff Christman, Pastor, will be organizing a Freedom Rally on June 1 in front of the courthouse, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Chris Christman, state Sen. Jared Carpenter, R-Berea, Nelson O’Donnell and Dr. Michael George will be discussing constitutional issues with the group of people who are sure to gather for this interesting and timely topic.

The public is invited, even strongly encouraged, to attend this though-provoking, public meeting.

Also, Trinity Baptist Church will have a Revival Meeting running from May 29-June 2.  The public is welcome to come out and glean from the teachings of these learned men of God.

With this being the Memorial Day weekend, many yard sales are certain to spring up in the many new subdivisions on the northern end of the county.

Is it any wonder that I would use an old adage with a silver lining? So, the adage for this week is as follows, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”

Until next week, may God bless you and yours.

    Who knew the Easter bunny could fly?

    Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
