I am like most Americans....
We have it so good, that we often forget what it's like to have it bad.
September 11th was a cruel reminder of what "bad" is. I don't intend to forget it ever again.
Here's a slideshow type presentation, to help us remember why we have a day called Memorial Day. It wasn't our present war in Iraq that put this holiday on the calendar, but it was a war just like it.....
.....a war where brave men and women lost their lives to protect our right to forget the bad.
And on a personal note:
A special thanks goes out to my beloved Brother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law. They are both active in the military. He is an Army Reservist, who has done a tour in Iraq
And she is a Naval Officer who has been in the Persian Gulf as well.
I can't say enough how proud I am of both of you, Jon and Jes. I'm so glad you're safe in the States....
