Never Forget

memorial_day_comment_graphic_08.gif 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.
