Memorial Day: Freedom is not as free as you think

I could write for days about how I feel on this amazing day so many Americans and other citizens of the world have cast aside. But I won’t.

Suffice to say, there is a mountain of sentiment and a sea of memories for this day. It’s more than a three-day weekend. It’s more than a reason to take off work. It’s much more than a whimsical, political preference. It’s more than anything we can muster.

Watch the video and remember… And oh, by the way, this ain’t the forum to flare off your anti-war sentiments. Know that. It’s about the people in the war, not the ration behind it.

They gave, so we could keep. They went, so we could stay. They died, so we could live.

God bless all the families of those we commemorate this hallowed weekend. Peace.

    And sad to report that our Commander-in-Chief is the first President in our country’s history NOT to attend Memorial Day services at the Arlington National Cemetery: sent the VP.

    We have been flushed by God. We just do not realize it, because we are all just swirling in the bowl . . . down . . . down . . . down.

    Thank you for this post and for reminding people that this weekend is for something other than opening the swimming pool.
