Remembering Why

Memorial Day for me is like a new beginning.  A new summer to look forward too.  Erin, soon to be off at school to paddle her outrigger.  Chris and I playing golf on Sundays.  It is all good.

Don't forget why we take a day to celebrate, to remember.  To the countless thousands who made the supreme sacrifice to allow us to continue on in our freedoms, to BBQ, to worship, to play, to love, to laugh and to be free, thank you will never be enough.  But, its all we have today.

A real thank you would be to end all wars.  Can you imagine?

I fully agree with you and your emotional evoking post Tom. Well said.
