We remember our men and women who serve our country today. We  honor our fallen hero’s and those who serve today with a parade and a celebration. We never forget the freedoms we as a nation enjoy everyday because of the sacrifices made. Some parents are celebrating the safe return of their son or daughter, some parents are waiting for their son and daughters to return, some parents today are mourning the loss of their loved ones.

Some parents today are estranged from their child and would like nothing more than to hear their voice today, some parents like I have lost their son or daughters to a tragic accident-they also was taken too soon. Today is filled with many emotions,we will celebrate with a lawn party, honor our veteran’s with a parade, catch up with old friends take the time to visit with one our older veteran’s and listen to the stories they have to tell. We can learn so much today if we take the time to listen and really understand what we celebrate today. Many have emotional scares they would like to forget, many bear the physical scares of war, many who have served our country come home to no jobs, many say our great nation is falling, THEN LET’S TAKE HER BACK!!

    My youngest son went to Afghanistan and it was pure torture for me every day. I grew up in a military family, but when he decided to join the Air Force, I had to bite my tongue. This is the history of my family. He is safe at home now. The reality of the possibility of loosing a child while in a country I really know nothing about is devastating. I pray for our troops and wish everyone a safe Memorial Day, and never forget those who have lost their lives for our country.
