Happy Memorial Day!!!

      Today, I'm filled with a new perspective. In the past, Memorial day was filled with BBQ's, friends, family,and excitement over the fact that there is no school. Today, is different for me and many others among our nation. Today, I want to say thank you all those who paid the ultimate price so that my children and I could have freedom. Thank you, to those like M's brother Stones who have fought and died valiantly protecting this great nation.
      I feel that Abraham Licoln said it best "The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain " Before, you light your grill today we ask that you take a few moments to remember what today is REALLY about and say a prayer for the families for whom the war and all of it's cost will never end.....

Happy Memorial Day!!!
