Remember Why

Image
Remember Why Today is a day to remember why.  Why we are able to fly the American Flag.  Why we can worship where we want; read what we want; have a voice and vote; work and travel freely.

These days we seem to live in divided and angry (we even have that freedom.) But, this day- this Memorial Day let's not argue, fight, and hate.  Let's come together and be Thankful - Thankful for the heroes that have paid the ultimate price and to the heroes that are still giving: active military, firefighters, teachers, doctors, nurses, and the list is endless. 
The National moment to pause, reflect, and remember is 3:00 p.m. Let's come together Remember all those that have sacrificed their Lives for our Freedom. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.  John 15:13
