Memorial Day


Here in the United States we are celebrating Memorial Day. This day was set aside in 1868 as a day to remember those who have died in our nations service.
As you enjoy your day today, take a moment to remember those who gave all for our freedom.

The price of freedom..is something we should remember every day, but especially on the special day set aside. God bless those who have served...and those who do so today.

Hi Mari, I'm sorry I took forever to get to your blog. I hope you had a good one. I was honored to have the father of a soldier guest blog on Memorial Day weekend. He talks about his severely injured son, his book and the community center.
