While we are having cook outs and spending time with friends and family today, it is good to remember why we are having Memorial Day. We are remembering those in the armed forces who died for our freedom. I love this picture I took of my daughter several years ago. She was walking with her brownie troop in our town's Memorial Day parade. She was so excited when the processional started moving that she raised her flag in the air, and started waving it. Maybe you went to a parade today. Maybe you will be celebrating with friends. However you decide to spend the day, I hope you have a safe and happy Memorial Day.
