The Real Memorial Day

Dad is a Vietnam War veteran.   He's also the biggest patriot I know, who loves the our country.   Almost every year while I was growing up and even afterwards, he would speak at a local Memorial Day service in Wisconsin.   On Memorial Day my sister and I went to the Memorial Day service in Aurora, Colorado.   It was a beautiful reminder of why we need to remember those who died to allow us to be free.

"I thank God for my life
And for the stars and stripes
May freedom forever fly
Let it ring

Salute the ones who died
The ones that give their lives
So we don't have to sacrifice
All the things we love"
