Happy Memorial Day

For all the men and women that valiantly have served and continue to serve our nation, I will have my entire family watch this movie today. It is about a fallen Marine and the effort that goes into "bringing him home".

I appreciate all that these brave soldiers do, so that we may live a life of freedom. This means a life where we do not have to have our children walk across a "line" that is guarded by machine gun carrying soldiers, just to get to school. We have running water, food and medicine available to us on a daily basis. I do not live in fear of daily air raids, sirens or bombs going off at any hour of the day or night.

I will pray for all the families that have had to bear the weight of losing a daughter, son, father, mother, brother or sister so that I may have these freedoms. This is a day here I will take the time to remind my children of what a wonderful country we live in and what makes it so great.

I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day and remember all those that have died so that we can live
Edit: Have since re-found where I first found out about this movie. Visit here.
