Memorial Day: Thanking those who died for us.
I love all the holidays we celebrate in America, including Memorial day, Fourth of July, Labor Day and Veterans Day. It brings out my patriotism, the wearing of red, white and blue, and big gatherings of family and friends. But it also brings a reminder to my heart to appreciate the fallen soldiers who helped provide my freedom to live in the country I love.
Over the past couple of days, I’ve been posting a few articles that I hope help you celebrate the day. Here is a very special one, dear to my heart. Be sure and look at the link at the bottom for the poignant story of the boy in the video and how he is honoring his dad today.
