As we enjoy the festivities of this Memorial Day weekend- the race, the parades, the cookouts...let us all also take a moment to remember what this day is all about- remembering those military members who have given the ultimate sacrifice to fight for our freedom. Let us also take a moment to remember the families who never got their homecomings, those injured in the line of duty and all those who made it home safely but were willing to risk it all for our country. Perhaps as a Marine wife, I am biased when I say- we are truly blessed to have the most wonderful military in this country and I thank all service members past and present for their sacrifices.
"There have only been two defining forces in the world willing to die for you: Jesus Christ and the American Soldier. Jesus died for your soul and the American Soldier died for your freedom."
I hope you all have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!
