Even though I am working this weekend..I am thinking of how blessed I am to be an American and of the sacrifices ones have made to keep us free!!

Quotes I found at the Huffington Post...

The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example. - Benjamin Disraeli Each man is a hero and an oracle to somebody. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for, Is their monument to-day, and for aye. -Thomas Dunn English

For love of country they accepted death... -James A. Garfield

The greatest glory of a free-born people is to transmit that freedom to their children. -William Havard

The dead soldier's silence sings our national anthem. -Aaron Kilbourn

For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity. -William Penn

On thy grave the rain shall fall from the eyes of a mighty nation! -Thomas William Parsons

The brave die never, though they sleep in dust: Their courage nerves a thousand living men. -Minot J. Savage

We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them. -Francis A. Walker

And I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free. And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me. -Lee Greenwood

Pat, we all get caught up in the fast pace of our lives and forget those who have made it possible...a fitting and timely post.

I have the privilege of knowing a few WWII vets and take every opportunity to thank them for their service.
