Lest We Forget-Memorial Day 2009

Even though cookouts are fun, let's not forget what Memorial Day is really all about. Without the sacrifice of the men and women who have fought for our country, we would not be able to enjoy all the aspects of freedom that we have today. Here is a quote from one of our military leaders many years ago:

On May 30, 1870, Maj. Gen. John A. Logan said: "Let us then all unite in the solemn feelings of the hour, and tender with our flowers the warmest sympathies of our souls! Let us revive our patriotism and strengthen our loyalty by the example of the noble dead around us."

Thanks to all for giving to a cause much greater than themselves.

Totally separate from Memorial Day, but I want to say "Happy Birthday" to our grandson today. His birthday happened to fall on Memorial Day this year so he not only had a birthday but a holiday from school! We love you!
