Then there's this one:

One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex was staring up at the
large plaque that hung in the foyer of the church. It was covered with
names, and small American flags were mounted on either side of it. The
seven-year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor
walked up, stood beside the boy, and said quietly, "Good morning Alex."

"Good morning pastor," replied the young man, still focused on the plaque.

"Pastor McGhee, what is this?" Alex asked.

"Well, son, it's a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the
service."

Soberly, they stood together, staring at the large plaque. Little Alex's
voice was barely audible when he asked, "Which service, the 9:00 or the
10:30?"
