Remembering the Fallen

As we all hurry back to our lives, homes, work etc. from this long holiday weekend. Let us not forget the meaning behind this day.

This is a day of conflicting meaning with both rememberance and celebration. Memorial day means different things to different people. Some only seeing it as a long 3 day weekend and a start to summer vacations, beach parties and cookouts. While others see it as a day to remember the fallen and pray for those still fighting the battle.

As a military wife and mother, my husband now retired airforce and my son-in-law currently serving in the airforce, I feel very blessed to be a part of the military family, and a citizen of the United States.

These men and women serve and have served proudly. Some fallen, some wounded and other continue to serve our country with many sacrifices.

This is not a time to mourn, but a time to honor and celebrate the lives of those who have fought for our country so diligently, those who have given the ulitmate sacrifice of their lives.

Wikipedia's definition of Memorial Day:

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. Service Members who died while in the military service. First enacted by formerly enslaved African-Americans  to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War - it was extended after World War I to honor Americans who have died in all wars.

Please help keep the true meaning of this day in the forefront of everyone's mind. Do it for those who have died and for those who coninue to put their lives on the line each and every day.

 
 

Red is for Bravery;
blood shed in sacrifice.
Freedom came with lives the price.


White is for Liberty;
freedom's purity.
Life be free from God's decree.


Blue is for Justice;
as vast as the sky.
Over freedom's land to occupy.
