Memorial Day   Leave a comment

Most people are just happy to have an extra day off of work, due to this holiday and I think they forget the importance of this day.
To give thanks and maybe even celebrate those soldiers who fought for our freedom over the decades.

Here in my little corner of the world there are the flags that hang proudly in the sun down at our local cemetary and it is quite beautiful.
There has to be close to two hundred flags there.
All of local men who fought in the wars.
My father in law, has his name on a flag down there for fighting in the Korean war.

I know most people feel this day is the beginning of summer and it is in a way.
But we should all remember those who fought, and some who died, so that we live in this wonderful place called The United States Of America.
