Our Country has been celebrating Memorial Day for 155 years.
The day is set aside to honor and mourn the U.S. military personnel who died serving our country.
Many people take their vacations while some take a four day weekend. They attend events ranging from community gatherings to large sports competitions such as the The Indianapolis (“Indy”) 500 motor race, relaxing on the beaches, hiking in the mountains appreciating the variouos activities.
And many Americans visit cemeteries, where volunteers often place American flags on graves remembering what they sacrificed for us.
I've often wondered how many of us stop and give thanks for what our brave military men and women did so we would have the freedoms we have in this country. Do you, wonder?
This memorial day, let us remember all those who gave their lives for us and appreciate the freedoms they secured for us.
God Bless Our Soldiers! God Bless Our Country!
