It is with gratitude and appreciation that we remember those brave individuals who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Every day, we send our thoughts and prayers to those serving in the armed forces around the world that they may return safely to their families.
We applaud the Wisconsin high student from Sparta, Sabrina Brady,
who won the contest this year for her Memorial Day Google Doodle. As she wrote, her drawing depicts "her best day ever"....showing what we believe is her Dad who served in Iraq, returning home....and could that be Sabrina herself....
One of the o's in Google is a yellow sun, shining above a young girl, seen in black and white except for the red, white and blue of the U.S. flag in her hand. This doodle has to warm your heart. In these four images, the girl approaches the soldier and in the final image, you feel the warmth of their reunion as they embrace.
For all the parents who miss a part of their children's childhood...for the children who miss that sharing with their parents...we thank you.
