A Young Boy Has A Religious Experience While Staring At A Veteran’s Plaque

Have you ever seen the show, ‘Kids Say the Darndest Things?’ It has been around for quite some time and it really centers on the fact that children can say some profound things, not because they have been around many years but because they are innocent. It is their innocence that we often appreciate most, and it is also the subject line of this very funny joke. It involves a little boy named Joey who is standing out in front of the church one day and what he has to say is sure to bring a smile on your face.

One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Joey standing in the foyer of the church staring up at a large plaque.

It was covered with names and had small United States flags mounted on both sides 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, Joey.”

“Good morning Father,” he replied, still focused on the plaque. “Father, 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 Joey’s voice, barely audible and trembling with fear, asked, “Which service, the 8:30 or the 10:30?”
