Some Gave All

Let's all please try to take a moment this Memorial Day weekend to remember those who have given their lives to protect our freedom. I saw on the news last night a report showing soldiers placing the flags on the graves in Arlington National Cemetery- over 250,000 of them. This was a really sobering number, especially since I know that many veterans were buried in family plots across the country.

So I hope we can all take a moment at least, away from the cookouts, holiday sales and beginning of summer road trips to remember those who paid the price.
