Memorial Day Tribute

Memorial Day Tribute
Pocket

On this beautiful Memorial Day Monday I am inclined to pay tribute to the men and women who have died fighting for the freedom of all Americans. I learned today that over 1,300,000 soldiers  have given their lives for the cause of freedom, since the time of our country’s birth. I honor them today, and their families as well.  You have my deepest respect and my undying gratitude.  I owe my privileged life of  freedom to you. Thank you.

I am going to have my kids sit down today, and watch this video that honors those who have fallen for our freedom. I’m hoping it will spark the opportunity for conversation and help plant in them a growing sense of patriotism, gratitude and respect.

I want them to understand that there is a price for freedom.

That we are blessed beyond measure…

to live in land of the free

and the home of the brave.

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested
    to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is
    entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
