I remember posting about Memorial Day last year
and showing you the Avenue of Flags
that our small town displays
at one of the local cemeteries.
It is a grand sight.
Seeing our flag flowing in the breeze always gives me a great feeling.
Seeing row upon row of them
gives me goosebumps.
I love this country!
I am also glad that our citizens
set aside one day to
honor the men and women of the armed services
who have served,
and given their lives in that service.
I just viewed some photos
that have been posted on
between some of this nations soldiers and their families.
Stop by there and enjoy the entries,
but keep a kleenex handy because...
Freedom is not free
and you will see some dear Americans who are paying for
you and me to enjoy that freedom.
Giving thanks today
for all who have gone before me,
and hoping I can do my small part
protect what others have died for.
Happy Memorial Day everyone!
