Lest We Forget . . .

Flower on Vietnam Memorial Passion-11183360Memorial Day gives us a three-day weekend that has come to mean the beginning of summer with all the barbecues, celebrations, and fireworks that start it off with a bang! 

We get a three-day weekend, a welcome break from the 40 hour time-clock.  The RV's seem to hatch all at once and begin their annual migration through the country.

The original and deeper meaning of the holiday is that it is a day of rememberance and gratitude for all the soldiers who have died defending our country, our beliefs, and our freedoms.

Let us not forget how blessed we are to live with the freedoms in this land that others would (and do) die for every day.
