Our country is protected by brave men and women serving in the armed services, many of whom have given their lives. We rise in the morning to our coffee and tuck our children in at night not giving thought to the safety their service provide.
Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. Many of us remember the passing of all loved ones on this day; however the traditional observance has been lost through the years.
Today and every day, let us not ignore the neglected gravesides or take for granted the flag they so proudly gave their lives to serve. And perhaps today we should say an additional prayer for the police, firefighter and all those who protect us from sunrise to sunset. Thank you Daddy, Barnie, Frank, Jordan and all who protect and serve...peace be with you.
