Like many, I am looking forward to an end to the rain so I can enjoy some time on the beach and a barbeque. But I always go to the Memorial Day parade and the wreath laying to honor those who have served in our military, those who currently serve, and those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can be free.
It’s hard to believe it’s almost Memorial Day, the traditional start of the summer season for so many. But if you don’t already, take a moment to remember why this is Memorial Day while your embracing Life, enjoying Liberty and Pursuing Happiness.
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Freedom. We would not have it except for the sacrifices of our military men, women and their families. So this weekend, take a moment to take part in services honoring our fallen, wounded and those who currently serve. Buy a red poppy from a vet and display it proudly. Visit a military cemetery and leave flowers or a flag or just take a moment to say a prayer for those that have fallen or for the safety of those that still serve.
If you’re one of the people who have so kindly contributed to my project for HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS, display your pin or tote bag (I just sent out a batch yesterday so you should have them soon!).
Thank you all for being here with me and may you all have a nice Memorial Day.
Today’s post is in memory of all who sacrifice so that we might be free . . .
