Let Freedom Ring!!

Wow, what a busy weekend. I cannot believe we are already back to the work week. I think we should reverse this schedule, have the week for the weekend and then only work 2 days on the weekend. Any takers?

We were so busy with getting caught up from working so many days without a day off, and then the viewing and funeral of our beloved friend and fellow brother in Christ. This man was a Veteran of the Korean War. At his funeral yesterday the Veterans were there for the 21-gun salute and presentation of the flag. A flag covered his coffin in the chapel and as it lay on the hill at the cemetery. It was a great honor to watch the Veterans fold this flag and present this to his wife, and salute her. Tears filled my eyes as I thought of all the young men and women who have lost their lives for this country. How many spouses, children, mothers and fathers have been left behind.

The Veterans asked us all to remember why we are able to stand here this day in peace and have all the privileges we have, the American Soldier. We seem to forget this easily as we go throughout our lives. We take this freedom for granted.

As yesterday was Flag Day, take time to remember our Veterans, our current soldiers and their families. Tell them how much you appreciate them and what they have given and are giving to us.

God Bless America!
