In Memory

Yesterday was Memorial Day and my 13 year old son got up by himself at 6:00 in the morning to ride our ATV down to the cemetery to help his scout troop put a flag on every veteran's grave in the cemetery. Then he went back in the late evening to help take them down.

As I drove by the cemetery that evening it struck me how many Veterans we have, and how many men and women gave something, sometimes their life to protect our Freedom. It was a beautiful sight as the slight breezed unfurled all the flags, one of those moments that chokes you up and reminds you how blessed you are to live in this country.
