Celebrating Memorial Day


Simple words on a blog can never quite express the gratitude I feel in my heart.

To all of you who have served faithfully, courageously, and selflessly so that I can live freely... thank you. My life is blessed because of your sacrifices.

To all of you who have kept the home fires burning, taken care of kids single-handedly, spent holidays without your loved ones at home with you... thank you. My life is blessed because of your sacrifices.

To those who gave all- their very lives- to fight for the honor of this great nation...thank you.

I celebrate you all....and God Bless the USA!

Holly,
I was actually named after my uncle who was killed in the Vietnam War. I have some of his stuff from that war and it is pretty amazing to think that he gave up his life so we could be free.
The resemblence between war heroes and Jesus are strinkingly similar, except for the Perfect Creator of the Universe part
Here's to those who gave their lives so we could pray and worship freely
