Today is a day of remembrance. Four years ago on this day, I spent Memorial Day at a parade in Washington, D.C., a city bursting with patriotism and pride. Each Memorial Day since, I always reflect upon that day, when we honor veterans of war, the heroes who have served our country. And, while we can't all be sitting on the streets of D.C. watching a Memorial Day parade, we can each spend the day praying for and thanking the brave men and women who have served our country. Today, forget the cattle markets, don't worry about that extra fence that needs fixing and simply remember those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Happy Memorial Day to all. Let us never forget...
Memorial Day Poem by Michelle Keim
As we stand here looking
At the flags upon these graves
Know these flags represent
A few of the true American brave
They fought for their Country
As man has through all of time
Except that these soldiers lying here
Fought for your country and mine
As we all are gathered here
To pay them our respect
Let's pass this word to others
It's what they would expect
I'm sure that they would do it
If it were me or you
To show we did not die in vain
But for the red, white and blue.
