I will be going to a wonderful ceremony tomorow to honor all men who laid down their lives in the past and a special salute to those who lost their lives this past year from our county. Today, in church, we were asked to stand if we served, if we were a parent of one who served, or a relative of one who served. Almost the entire church body were standing.Long may that beautiful flag wave. I am prod to be an American.ReplyDeleteRepliesReply♥♥ Willa ♥♥8:44 PMHappy Memorial Day to you,Sandy!WeekendsnapshotReplyDeleteRepliesReplyIndrani9:01 PMWonderful quote to go with today's post!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplySASSY MOM9:28 PMNice shot, Sandy! and a very heartwarming post.
