Memorial Day - A Time to Honor

Real Estate Agent with The Berkshire Group

Today is a day we honor all of the brave men and women who have served in the armed forces protecting the rights and freedoms we all enjoy and often take for granted. We need to honor those daily who continue to sacrifice both abroad and here at home.

I recently became a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution tracing my father's side of the family back to a patriot, William Steen of South Carolina. I am so proud to be an American and I especially want to honor my family members for all they have given to me and our country.

Very well said.  Our church choir and orchestra paid tribute to each branch of the US Armed Services today.  It was quite moving.

Emelyn, I will be at our local Memorial Day Parade tomorrow, as I always am, to pay tribute to those who defend our country and all it stands for. I get so upset when our political leaders compromise the very foundations of our republic for their personal political agenda. But I will forever honor and salute the brave members of our armed forces - present and past.

Tiffany, Richard and Pat - Thank you for your comments. I believe that it is so important that we not forget these special much is taken for granted and we must always remember our past and those that sacrificed for us. And today, when so many of our own have volunteered to be in harm's way so that the rest of us can go about our daily lives, it becomes imperative that we honor then daily.

Be safe and again, thank you.

Yes; a time to honor... and pray for those who are still fighting... and for all the families who are awaiting their safe return... EVERY day. My heart goes out to all of them; past, present and future.
