Lest we forget...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3G1FvlPakkU&sns=em


Memorial Day is just that....a day of remembrance, of those left behind saying thank you and recalling memories in front of a quiet white stone.

Memorial Day has little to do with the various wars, conflicts, etc. that protesters will shout about.

Memorial Day is about the fallen men and women, over all the generations, who believed in what their hearts told them freedom was all about. Freedoms we enjoy daily and take for granted. Freedoms they no longer know.

It is not about celebrating war. It is about celebrating the life of those soldiers who stood so you didn't have to. It's about saying thank you, and we miss you.

Dear Deanna -
So glad to hear that your neck of the woods was spared from this wild weather!
Thank you for the Memorial Day tribute. This is a very important day in our house - not a shopping day, or six-pack day, etc.
Take care,

Jeremiah 6:16
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
