In Our Hearts

In the United States, today is Memorial Day. This day is often considered to be the *unofficial* kick off of the Summer season. There will be family picnics and children happily splashing in swimming pools. Some couples will go fishing, others, to the beach. Many folks will use the day to plant flowers and some will catch the new movie blockbuster. No matter how you choose to spend your day, please try to take a moment to remember the men and women, of every nation, who fought and died to preserve freedom around the globe.

I'm proud to be an American! And I am so proud and thankful to our young men and women who defend our freedom.

I hope you're having a good Memorial Day. Come by and view a great video at the end of my last post honoring our "warriors". It's very touching and worth watching.

Hugs!
Kat

A great reminder, dear Susie!

We always put flowers on family graves, and my husband's dad who has passed away was a WWII vet. My husband wasn't in a war, but served in the Navy...
It is so important to remember all those that served, but especially those that gave their lives for our country!
