Memorial Day

Today we honor those men and women who’ve sacrificed their lives for America.

On Memorial Day, a U.S. flag is placed on each grave at Arlington National Cemetery in remembrance. Dad and Mom are buried there as well as my husband’s father. Flags also grace their graves.

I also honor and thank those women and men currently serving the U.S. military and their families who worry about them.

This is a day of respect.

A somber reminder of all who gave so much so we might enjoy our freedoms. I just watched the ceremony at Arlington National Cemetary on the news....how very moving.
