In Loving Memory on This Memorial Day

Memorial Day  is a Day when we pause to give thanks to the people  who fought for things we have, . Our freedom. Is the true meaning of  Memorial Day lost with  The Generation of  today, to them it might seem like a day to  have a BBQ and a 3 day weekend and go to the graves of loved ones and decorate , Although I could be entirely wrong, Memorial Day  is the Day to Honor  our Nations  Veterans both past and present, For many of us however it is a time of sorrow, remembrance  missing the family and friends we have lost over the years and the heartache  many still have, Our Veterans both past and present are the true American Idol. They gave  us their lives so many of us could enjoy our next   tomorrow. This started way before any of us were a part of this earth and to this day we still honor those that have  held their head up high and gave all they could. So today just take a moment to yourself  and  remember what you have and be thankful for it..

To all of those that have fought  for my  nations freedom  Thank you…

    Thank you for posting this. My husband is retired Air Force and was in VietNam. My dad was in Air Force and in the Berlin Airlift – so I’m pretty much a military family. What would we do without all those who so willingly have given up their lives for our freedom. God bless them all, active, retired, passed on. Hugs to you!
