Memorial Day Weekend...

I copied this post from my other blog. So, if you subscribe/follow them both I apologize for copying. But, I thought it was a message I should share here too.

I always enjoy the 3 day weekend as much as anyone else. A few days ago I got an email from my SIL. It had numerous pictures all relating to Memorial Day.

I thought I might share one.



It is the VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the VETERAN, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN, not the politician, Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the VETERAN who salutes the Flag.

So, this is to you, Veterans, thank-you!

Happy Memorial day to ALL. Please be careful this weekend and enjoy the time how ever you see fit.

And if you see some one from our military - stop, shake their hand and tell them, "Thank-you."

Smiles -Denise
