A Day to Remember
Today, Memorial Day, is not just about fallen soldiers of wars gone by;
elderly gentleman saluting the colors, bedecked in medals worn proudly;
nor small flags snapping in the breeze around many neighborhoods.
Its not about majestic monuments
and it is certainly not about politicians stumping at picnics and nursing homes.
It is about heroes. It is about not only those lost, but those left behind. I don't know who this young woman is or if she is aware that her photo is all over the internet. I do know, she is a hero. Not only did her young soldier pay the price for our freedom, so did she. Take a moment to remember her as well and give a prayer of thanks. A prayer of thanks for all the freedoms we enjoy and for those who bought those freedoms. None of them came without a price to be paid.
