It's Memorial Day Weekend! Most people just think of it as just another holiday - another three day weekend. I'd like to take some time to remember the many men and women who have or still are fighting for our country, in the States and overseas. Without your service we would not have the capability to be able to do what we do everyday and have the freedoms that we, so often, take advantage of. I am so thankful for every military member, every branch of the armed forces, for everything you have done and are still doing today. Thank you!!
I encourage all of our readers to remember what Monday is really about. If you're spending your day with your family at a barbeque, remember that there are so many over in Iraq or Afghanistan (among other countries and states) that aren't able to be home with their families. Take some time to remember them, thank them, and pray for them. Hope you all have a safe and happy Memorial Day!
