Happy Memorial Day!
I'm sharing a few photos from
a blog post a couple of years ago.
The singing of our National Anthem and watching
our flag wave in the wind always gives me chills,
and THE Red, White and Blue always brings tears to my eyes.
A child of the 60's and 70's, I was not allowed to watch
the black and white TV past 9 o'clock.
Daddy made sure that we were in bed before the 11:00 news.
The nightly news showed the graphic, horrific results
of the Vietnam War. I heard it all from the confines of my bedroom
and couldn't go to sleep long after.
I admit to praying that God would not take my
brother or my boyfriend or any of my friends to fight in the war.
As a child of the 70's I never will forget.
I live beside a man who fought and was without honor for many years.
I am thankful that our flag still stands.
I am thankful for the men and women who have served
and who continue to serve our great nation.
And yes, I am thankful that our nation finally
paid tribute and gave honor for those
who gave their lives, their minds and their bodies
to a war that some deemed unnecessary.
Thank you Vietnam Vets.
Yes, we honor you today.

Awesome tribute to our Veterans in the Braves Pre-Game Show.
Honoring all branches of service.
Chills and tears.
