Memorial Day 2011

I spent a little time this afternoon walking through the National Cemetery reflecting on what Memorial Day truly means.  It is overwhelming to contemplate all the brave men and women who have died insuring the freedom that we take so for granted.  Although I don't personally know one soul laid to rest in that peaceful place, I couldn't help but tear up as I walked past name after name.  These are the best of our best. 

As you enjoy the unfolding of Summer 2011 I hope you will take time to remember and reflect upon the meaning of Memorial Day and if you have the opportunity, thank those that have and are currently risking their lives for your freedom and the future of our great nation.


Thank you for stopping by...leave a little of your sparkle before you go!
