Memorial Day 2010

Were it not for those who have gone before,
For those who wrote our Constitution,
This blog would be moot.

Our rights as we know them,
Would not exist.

Take time out today and remember our Founding Fathers.
Remember our soldiers who have fought and died for our Country.
For our Lifestyle.

For once we forget....
Their lives have been for naught.

My Dear Husband said it best:

Living veterans should be celebrated not just on Veterans day but EVERY DAY. Memorial day was set aside as a somber contemplative day to remember those men and women who gave all so we could live FREE in the greatest country in the world. To remember that freedom is not free and the price those individuals paid in blood made us who we are.

Mr. Daddy said...

very thoughtful posting...

What your DH said is so true. We should remember and be thankful every day, for the sacrifice of these brave men and women...

Memorial day is just a SPECIAL day for remembrance...

Well said.

Wonderful sentiments! Coming from a family of Military, it seems so few people know it's about anything but the annual sales!
