Thank you

Thank you

Congratulations!  You made it to the weekend!  And not just any weekend, a three-day holiday weekend!!!!! I myself am looking forward to having the hubby home from his long week of work on the road, grilling, and getting tomato plants in the garden!

But before we break out the grill, kick up our feet and relax or hit those Memorial Day sales, I want to remember. For Memorial Day I want to remember all those that sacrificed their life, their time, and gave their service for my freedom.  Thank you to all those who serve in the military or have served in the military.  Thank you to their families too. 

Thank you to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.  We remember.

In Flanders Field   by John McCrae

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

 

 

He's free thanks to the sacrifice of others!
