Memorial Day has such a deep meaning for us, and for everyone being protected by the freedom of our nation. Can you imagine a world where we weren't free to enjoy our choices, live our lives, and go about our own business at whatever level of autonomy we choose?
Neither Can I. Neither Could They.
Our family is full of military men on both my husband's side and my own.
My husband served, and is a Gulf War veteran.
My son is serving now.
If they're not in uniform, they are thought of as just people on the street. But to the people who love them, they are our sisters, brothers, mothers, fathers, spouses, children, aunts , uncles, and friends...and they are the ones who would give up their lives so we can keep our freedom. Today is a day to remember our national heroes. It is a day to honor those who are serving, and a day to remember those who have lost their lives so that we can continue to live ours freely. They are the ones that serve so I can close this post with the words, "One Nation, Under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All," and that is no small thing.
