Memorial Monday ~ Lest We Forget

"To those who have fought for it, freedom has a flavor the protected will never know." ~Source Unknown~

Memorial Day is meant to honor the members of the United States Military, especially those brave men and women who made the ultimate and irrevocable sacrifice for our nation's freedom.

In doing this, we also honor not only those who have served, but also those currently serving, and especially those still in harm's way.

Someone once said there is no such thing as an unwounded soldier who has been in a war zone. Not all wounds are visible to the naked eye. There may be no external scars, missing limbs, or other apparent disability; however, young men and women who have seen combat often bear less obvious but lasting scars on their minds and their souls.

Today, as we gather with family and friends to picnic, party, and BBQ, bow your head in prayers and thanksgiving in remembrance of the souls lost so you may be free.

It is the least we can do.
