Happy Monday and Memorial Day!
As I think of the thousands of lives lost fighting for our country, it just brings tears to my eyes. Ashton’s father and maternal grandfather are both military veterans and for some reason, I do not say Happy Memorial’s Day to either one of them. Memorial Day, means you are remembering those who are no longer here who fought for our country. My dad and I went to multiple places today and when he said he was retired Naval officer, they said “Thank you for your service and Happy Memorial Day,” which I thought was odd. Maybe it is just me. Maybe being proud of having a veteran who died fighting to protect us. Just my thoughts.
As I prepare for the LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL, I leave you with this:
“Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it….It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it.”– Unknown
Enjoy the rest of your Monday!
