Honoring the fallen

Flags up today, please! Tragically, flying your flag has become a political statement. But since it has, please make it!

Today we honor those who have given their lives in service to our country. To the friends and family of all those who have done so, our thoughts and prayers are with you. And we stand beside you in gratitude to honor them.

If you have the opportunity to buy a poppy (or poppies) from the VFW, please do so. Here’s some background: The meaning of Memorial Day. Here’s some more at usmemorialday.org.

And a poem there which I remember hearing over the years:

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

Speak Your Mind
