Thank You to our Veterans

May we stand with diligence and with humility on the broad shoulders of those whose brave deeds and sacrifice we memorialize today. Let all of us commit this day, whether in public ceremony or in quiet reflection over a single grave, to remember them in fitting tribute."

From Prayer for Peace,
Memorial Day
by the President
of the
United States of America -

George W. Bush

What a wonderful tribute.

I think Memorial Day means more the older we get - as we realize the sacrifices made by our veterans.

Ahh, my dad looks so cute in this pic! Nice post. The one about grandma made me kind of sad, but reminds me to appreciate my parents more while I have them! Melinda
