Today Americans everywhere are celebrating Memorial Day, a day dedicated to honor the service men and women who gave their lives for freedom and country. It is also a time to remember loved ones who have passed away.
Today also marks the beginning of the gardening season for many – a time to bring outdoor spaces back to life, breakout the backyard barbeques, and celebrate those we love. As we honor those lost and usher in the changing seasons, have fun and enjoy!
Something to Think About
Not everyone throughout the world has the same liberties and freedoms that we have here in America. It might not be perfect, but it’s far better than many places in the world.
Take time to remember lost loved ones in whatever way you feel appropriate.
