Memorial Day

Memorial Day is upon us again.
I am gone today - visiting cemeteries (more on that later).
However, I would be remiss if I didn't take the day to recognize
how blessed I am as an American.

It would be wrong too, if I didn't take a moment to honor
those that have protected the rights given to me as an American
These guys:

and countless other men and women who have
fought and died to protect what Americans believe it.

Thank You for.....

Freedom To Worship

Freedom Of Speech

Freedom From Want

Freedom From Fear

Because Freedom Has Never Been Free

So nice of you to remind us that Memorial Day is about more than BBQs and poolside drinks. I needed that.

Thank you for this, Jules. My Dad is buried right there in Arlington after serving in WWII, Korea and Vietnam.
