Memorial Day found me in t
ears. I was crying because of the insensitivity of people. For a lot of folks, Memorial Day is a day off work and a day at the beach. However it’s not just any other day. Memorial Day should be a day of reverent remembering and grateful thanksgiving. Someone is working overtime so you can have a day off and your day at the beach was brought to you by their day at the beach.
If people weren’t willing to fight for our freedoms, we would always, everyday even when we’re feeling under the weather, we would be at work and we wouldn’t dare go to a beach.
All thanks and gratitude goes to those who are protecting these words I write. Freedom isn’t free, people fought and died to give the right to go to the beach and take a day off.
We should think about those buried in Arlington National Cemetery and we should think about those who have lost their lives on the other side of the world. All to us freedom.
I was upset on Memorial Day because the radio stations did not play patriotic music, they continued on like it was any other day.
Where was Lee Greenwood when I needed him??
I am proud to be an American and my heart is hurting for the families of those who have given the the ultimate sacrifice. Those are the real heroes of life, not the Marvel Superheroes or Superman. Capes are cool, but my heroes wear Army Green, Navy Blue, Marine Uniforms.
We live in the home of the free because of brave!
Thank you to all who serve in any branch of the military.
