Memorial Day Weekend

This weekend is a true tribute to the men and women who have served, are serving, and have given the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. They have all come from different backgrounds, different heritages, different races, different ethnicites, and small towns and big cities. They left their towns, communities, cities, and families to fight the good fight and protect their loved ones from harm. We can sleep better at night because of the sacrifices these people have made and are continuing to make on a daily basis.

There are many memorial sites and dedications to our veterans throughout our great country. These are a testament to our hard working military personnel, we should visit and attend them to show our support of these awesome folks. We can get caught up in the hustle and bustle of our daily routines sometimes, and forget all of the freedoms we have. Each one of these freedoms have been bought and paid for by our military members. If you have a difficult time remembering some of the freedoms we enjoy, read a copy of The Bill Of Rights or The US Constitution this weekend and be reminded of all we have to be thankful for.

I know it can be hard to see these things in the times we are experiencing now. With unemployment up, homelessness on the rise, our country still at war, and so on and so forth. But, the armed forces of our country past and present, should be celebrated and remembered for the accomplishments they have achieved. We speak English for the most part, (although I like to refer to it as AMERICAN), because of the fighting spirit of our military heroes. The USA is the world's melting pot of people and we have been through some very tough times throughout our history. We are still a democracy of differing races, creeds, genders, etc., because our armed forces refused to give up and take the gentler path.

The men and women in uniforms of five different services have stood by us and fought to defend us from all forms of tyranny and terrorism, extortion and oppression. We should make an effort to commend them for the jobs that they do. If you have served, I personally want to salute you and shake your hand for the job you have done or are doing. I want all of you to know that I am proud to have served along side you. I want you to know I am a better person because of the military life I led and I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve my country and nation. On this three day weekend I want you all to know you are loved and admired. May God continue to Bless you and Keep You! Happy Memorial Day! The bill of rights .
