Memorial Day Tribute

On this day we need to stop offer a tribute and remember all of those who gave their lives for us to have our freedom.  This video is a little longer than most that we post but the message is so powerful.  Take the time to watch.  It will touch your heart.  So many of us just can’t even understand the pain that the families of these lost soldiers know.  What we can do is take time to thank a soldier when you see them while you still can.  Walking through the airport, the mall or just on the street.  Stop them.  Shake their hands and tell them just how much their service means to not only you but to this country.  I am so proud when I hear of people who give up their seat in first class for a soldier going home. Or even to just acknowledge them on a flight.  Remember they chose to do this service.  There is no longer a draft that took our young men without their choice to serve.  These people made the choice and we should thank them.  Enjoy your holiday but remember who it is really for…. Our Heroes.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

A Memorial Day Tribute

Memorial Day is a time to remember those who have lost thier lives serving our country. In honor of the men and women who have given so much we offer this beautifully done video.   This is one of those holidays where we can easily forget the real purpose.  We sometimes get caught up with the launch of summer, with barbecues with friends and family.  We enjoy our day off from work but do we really take the time to remember.  To remember those who lost their lives to preserve our freedom.   If you cannot attend any of the observances this is a good way to reflect on the sacrifices these people have made for our country.

We thank all who have lost a family member through service to this great nation.  We can never forget those who spent many days, weeks and even years away from their families and too often not return home. Memorial Day is to remember….and to honor.

Remember these great words, “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” -John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

Rolling Thunder Rolls On Again

Today’s video is from 2010 but it is also happening today.  This weekend is the annual Rolling Thunder ride in Washington DC. Rolling Thunder’s mission is to educate, facilitate, and never forget by means of a demonstration for service members that were abandoned after the Vietnam War. Rolling Thunder has also evolved into a display of patriotism and respect for all who defend our country.  It happens every year over Memorial Day weekend.  The Rolling Thunder First Amendment Demonstration Run is an annual ride and gathering that first started in 1988. Riders from around the nation, and even around the world rally in the Pentagon parking lots and begin the run through the streets of Washington, D.C. Afterward, it is an opportunity to meet old and new friends, pay respect at the memorials and participate in the Memorial Day events.  The run is open to all who wish to show their support.  The run is always on the Sunday before Memorial Day Observance.

This video shows a lone Marine who saluted the riders by standing in honor of his fallen comrades.  You can see that he at times he is overwelmed with the tribute.

If you can’t be in Washington DC this weekend take a moment to watch this and feel apart of a great tradition of honor and respect for our veterans and active military.  We won’t forget.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!
