DECORATION DAY IS HERE

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY
 set aside time to pause and remember

"The brave die never,
 though they sleep in dust:
Their courage nerves a thousand living men." 

"With the tears a Land hath shed. Their graves should ever be green."

A nice reminder to pause and remember. We have our flag out but looks like we're due for more rain.

Yes, we will always remember and never forget the brave sacrifice that was made to keep up safe. May God Bless America.

A good time to reflect on those who gave their lives for our freedoms. I always want to go to the events of the day to honor them but I always seem to end up working Memorial Day. Hope to do so one day.

Perhaps more so than any other, Memorial Day is so humbling.

I hope to visit the Wall someday; Arlington as well, and Ft. Snelling where my parents' remains are interred. We've so much for which to be grateful, it boggles the mind!

How wonderful that you've chosen to call it Decoration Day. I haven't heard that for a long time. I also love the quotes that you've used.
I hope your Memorial Day is a good one.

Perhaps some day we will have peace in the world.
But we should always take time to pause and remember.
