What is today? A day we have BBq's , shop the sales, enjoy a day off of work. It is so much more. Today is a day we are to honor our fallen soldiers, to honor the men and women serving our country. They give so much. Today I think of my grandfather. He was in the service for 30 years. He was in WWII and the Vietnam war. He was proud to serve his country, and was very patriotic, and raised us to honor and respect the men and women who serve our county and give so much so that we can enjoy such freedom. Growing up we flew a flag at our house, not just on patriotic holidays but ALWAYS. Today my family does the same. Today I would like to say thank you to all the men and women who give so much for us. Today I want to remember all the families who are living without their love ones because they gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. As we celebrate memorial day I will think of all these special human beings who did and do give their lives totally to protecting and serving our great country. Amen.
