CONSIDER THIS: Memorial Day

As the Memorial Day holiday weekend approaches, I hope you have plans to enjoy some time with family or friends.

But let’s not forget the reason for the holiday.

Memorial Day is set aside as a time to honor the men and women who have died while serving in the US military.

I’m a fan of thanking anyone who has gone through the rigors of military training and military life to serve this great country, but our appreciation should go far beyond that for those who have given their lives for us, for our freedoms.

If you’ve lost a loved one in military service, you have our heartfelt condolences, and we’d like to express the deepest respect and gratitude for the service of all those brave men and women.

    For the rest today, the rain chances remain high at 70% through the afternoon. Most of the rain will be to our west over in Texas, and along the Sabine River. There will not be as much rain in places to our east. Parishes like Allen, and Jeff Davis may only see some drizzle and light rain at times. Western Cameron, Calcasieu, Beauregard, and western Vernon parishes will likely have more rain throughout the day. This will be mostly rain, with storms unlikely.
