This picture was taken several years ago, and it is still one of my favorites. Kara was marching in the Memorial Day parade with her brownie troop. Just as the parade started, Kara held her flag up high and excitedly started waving it. It is easy to forget what this day is really about.. a day to remember those who fought and died for our freedoms. Many of us spend the day cooking out with our families and friends. While we are doing so, let's also be like that excited little girl who waves her flag proudly. I hope you have a Happy Memorial Day.
