Memorial Day Thank You

So its Memorial Day weekend. All my co-workers spent the day discussing their weekend plans, beach, BBQ, party, travel, etc. Not one person mentioned that they were going to go to a cemetery and honor a fallen Hero. I don't even think they even know what we are suppose to be observing on Memorial Day.

I want to send out a Thank You to all the families of fallen Heroes this weekend. Their family member lost there lives so we could continue to enjoy the freedoms we have and hold dear.

I have two family member currently serving in the US military and I am very proud. I always worry about them as they have both been deployed and one is leaving again soon.

I asked my brother once while he was on deployment if he felt he was making a difference by serving in the military. He told me he does it so his nieces and nephews may one day only have to read about terrorism in a history book.

Fight the good fight. Remember our fallen Heroes this weekend. Say a prayer for all the other Heroes protecting our freedoms.


  1. We are trying to teach our children to honor our soldiers even though we don't believe we are right to be fighting this war. It's tough. We're taking them to a military parade on Monday and the older ones are sending care packages to Iraq.

    Thanks for this post. We don't actually know anyone fighting. Sometimes we need to be reminded that our friends have husbands and brothers and moms and dads over there.

  2. Thanks for this post. My cousin is over in Iraq now...

  3. Great post! My cousin is serving in Iraq.
