Happy Memorial Day

Remembering All TheWomen and Men Who Have Served To Protect our Beautiful Country – the USA

Image of US FlagHappy Memorial Day to all my followers and to those who live in the US and are celebrating this day. As we plan out our extra day off to go to a BBQ, a long weekend get away, or for my hubby and I(a leisurely bike ride), let’s not forget to give pause and thanks for those who sacrificed their lives and those who continue to put their lives at risk to protect our beautiful country, the USA.
We are very fortunate to live our lives however we choose, to protest or speak out against our leaders, to celebrate our sexuality, to dress how we want, to live and work where we want, to travel safely and freely throughout our country and beyond, to educate ourselves, to read and write whatever we want. It is partly because of those who served that we have these freedoms. I for one am very grateful every day for these freedoms we sometimes take for granted.

Memorial Day is just one more day to remind us to think about how lucky we are to live in the US and to say thank you to those who have served and continue to serve.

So, thank you for all who have served and continue to serve in the US military.
