Thanks to Dana for this little story! The girltalkers will be back Monday.
"One Sunday morning,
the pastor noticed little Alex standing in the foyer of the church
staring up at a large plaque. It was covered with names and small American flags
mounted on either side of it. The six-year old had been staring at the
plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up, stood beside the little
boy, and said quietly, 'Good morning Alex.'
'Good morning Pastor,' he replied, still focused on the plaque. 'Pastor, what is this? The pastor said, 'Well son, it's a memorial to all the young men and women
who died in the service.' Soberly, they just stood together, staring at
the large plaque. Finally, little Alex's voice, barely audible and
trembling with fear asked, 'Which service, the 8:30 or the 10:45?'"
