I recently read some facts about every day life in a communist country that is in the news quite a bit these days. It was surreal for me to even fathom this type of a life because I was born in the United States and I have enjoyed the freedoms of a Republic my entire life. I recognize that the freedoms I enjoy were not free. Brave heroes sacrificed their lives for not just their own families, but people they did not even know personally. To me, that is complete and total love for your country and fellow man.
I do not believe that anyone purposely takes for granted what our veterans that have lost their lives protecting us have sacrificed. However, I do believe it’s important that we remind one another and teach the next generation what Memorial Day is all about. And, that we remember and honor the brave soldiers that literally gave their all.
We live next to a town that has a parade and a big party over Memorial Day weekend. The name of the event is “Felton Remembers”. That pretty much says it all. We remember and we are grateful.
If you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to take a moment to pause and remember. Have a wonderful Memorial Day and a fantastic week!
Shared with love,
