Memorial Day 2010

Take time today--amid the BBQs and family gatherings--to reflect on the meaning of Memorial Day.  Take time to appreciate why our young men and women go into battle.  Take time to thank our military for loving the freedom we too often take for granted.  Take time to comprehend the sacrifice that so many Americans have made and continue to make.

For myself I thank every American who has served for your willingness to stand tall and proud for your country and mine.  And for your willingness to give your life if necessary.  You are true American heros.
