Service memorial

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 8:15 or the 10:30?"

How can you argue with a child's logic?

The pastor could have told Alex that is was the 2.30 afternoon service and this was the reason there were no more afternoon services. That should have eased Alex somewhat I think
