Memorial Day Remembrance

World War II American Cemetery in Normandy, France.

I am remembering today those who have fallen so that we may have freedom.  We owe a debt we can never fully repay.  We must make sure that their lives were not lost in vain.  It is up to us keep Freedom’s Light burning.

God Bless those who gave it all and those who are willing everyday to make the ultimate sacrifice.

America loves you all.


Thank You Veterans

generations of valor picThank you to all of our Veterans!

Because of you, we have remained free and others are free around the world.

We owe a debt to you that can never be repaid.

Thank you …thank you…thank you!

A poem I found today…..

Two Simple Words

Have you thanked a soldier lately
For everything they’ve done?
For all their work and sacrifice;
For battles lost or won?
Have you ever passed a moment in quiet solitude?
Thinking of a way to show support and gratitude?
What about two simple words?

Thank You

Remember those that came before us,
and those that stand with us today,
And to those whose time is not yet here,
I have two words to say –

Thank You

You have the Heart to stand and fight.
The Soul to stand for what is right.
You stand for Freedom, day and night.
For all this and more –

Thank You

Two simple words you may not hear enough
When the good is hard to see, or the battle is getting rough.
Although your heart may break, yet and still you remain tough.
For all that and more –

Thank You

And though I might not know your name,
We’re Red, White and Blue… family the same.
You serve our country willingly, protect freedom without fail.
Compared your brave actions, these words may seem a little pale.
But still… for everything you are, and everything you do
I’d like to say two simple words –

Thank You

Memorial Day 2009: Thanks for your sacrifice!

In Remembrance–
As we honor their memory today, let us pledge that their lives, their sacrifices, their valor shall be justified and remembered for as long as God gives life to this nation.
– Ronald Reagan, Memorial Day, 1982

A wonderful tribute to those who died so we can continue to live free….From Blackfive:

Honor them by ensuring that our future was worth the sacrifice of their tomorrows.
