Every year the United States takes time out in May to spend time with family. Picnics are the norm, but what of those who won’t get to spend time with their family? Those who sacrificed their lives so that we could live in a free country? People are starting to remember that Memorial Day is a day to honor those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we wouldn’t have to. There have been two major attacks on US soil from foreign powers, plus a third that could have been major but we got lucky. Outside of disputes within our borders all fighting has taken place on other continents. People born in this country died far from home to keep us safe from our enemies.
Every year I go searching for a good tribute video, and there are a lot of tribute videos to choose from. It does my heart good to see Americans are honoring this day while still spending time with loved ones or just remembering the fallen. Here’s the one I chose for this year.
My thanks to those who gave all that we may live, my heart to the families of those who lost someone they love overseas preserving freedom, and my prayers for those who fight today against the enemies of peace and freedom. A happy and safe Memorial Day to you all.
