Remember the why of the holiday



Memorial Day 2011 is upon us.

Many will be enjoying the first long weekend of the summer season. If you are in that group, I wish you plenty of good weather, fun, family and memories. 

Speaking of memories, 
let us not forget why we have a long weekend. 
Memorial Day is that day we take time to give thanks to all the men and women who served this country bravely and with much sacrifice for all our freedoms we enjoy.
  These are true American Heroes!


Many gave the ultimate, 
 their lives so that we can still enjoy our freedom.

If you happen to come across a veteran, in uniform, retired, or even in civilian clothes, stop take a minute and thank them. Ask to shake their hand and let them know you appreciate what they did to serve our country.

I also like to include thanking the veteran or active military persons family. 
They also have to give up time with their loved one and do all the things that keep their family together and strong while the service person is gone away from home. 
In a military family, all know sacrifice.




God Bless and keep you safe.

Thank you for your bravery and sacrifice.

You are all remembered 
and held close to my families hearts.

Until next time...

  4. We often forget, or don't realize, what veterans had to go through fighting the tyrants and dictators of the world, both recently, and in the distant past.

  5. I always think of the Nov one when you say Memorial Day. There really should be a universal memorial day.
