Hi all! Welcome to the start of summer!! Yes, we all love a good BBQ and trip to the beach, lake, park, etc, but we need to remember to keep this day special in our hearts. Memorial Day is the day to remember our fallen heroes, our brave military who have died protecting this great nation! For a more thorough history of Memorial Day please check out this site, as it had some fascinating information. Just wanted to take a moment to remind us all how very important Memorial Day is.
If any of you are in the military or have family in the military, I'm incredibly grateful for all of your sacrifices for my family and the entire country! May God bless each and everyone of you!! And for all the soldiers who have gone before us, a very special thank you for your incredible generosity to your country -- I know God has already blessed each of you, as he met you.
Moina Michael poem:
We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.
