Memorial day is set aside to remember our military veterans, particularly those who paid the ultimate price. It is the one day every year (if you only choose one) to show the men & women of the United States Armed Forces, how much we appreciate their service.
As Americans, we rely heavily on (and sometimes take for granted) the Rights and Freedoms that have been bestowed upon us. They define our lives in ways like nowhere else in the world, and they are carefully guarded by a select group of selfless, brave souls.
Most, in this elite group of honorable patriots, are less than 20 years old. Yet they follow orders blindly, to protect us and our way of life. These acts deserve so much more. But at a minimum, we take this one day to honor them and/or their memories.
Please have a safe and sane weekend and take time to remember. If you would be so kind…please also keep my son, Blake in your thoughts & prayers.
