Memorial Day!

ImageI couldn’t bring myself to say “Happy” Memorial Day today….because the basis of this day is not happy. 

To all who have served, are serving, and will serve in the future….

To the families that have mourned the fallen both past and present….

To the orphans of soldiers who paid the ultimate price….

Words cannot express my appreciation, support, and love for your courage and sacrifice. 

Today is not a day to share my opinions on the evils of our government, nor is it the time to express anything other than complete and unadulterated thanks and support for our troops.

May we all remember those who have given it all, for a cause they believed in. 

They are the true definition of patriots and heroes.

I hope you enjoy this rendition of the Star Spangled Banner!

  2. You’re so right, it isn’t a “happy” day but an important day of contemplation and reflection.
