For me, it is always very difficult to write a Memorial Day post. I find that, as I am writing, tears are usually running down my face. I start thinking of all the brave men and women that this country has lost, while they were representing us on the battlefield or while protecting our country. This Memorial Day, however, I am dedicating this post to the families of those fallen soldiers.
I am thinking of the tables all over this country with someone missing. Someone who has given his or her life for the rest of us and the families that are feeling the pain of that loss.
While we are setting our tables and planning menus for our families and friends, I wonder how hard this day must be for them. I think that we all can imagine and I hope that we reach out and thank them for their sacrifice and the ultimate sacrifice of their loved ones.
So, when you are grilling your hamburgers and hot dogs, please think about those for whom Memorial Day was always meant to honor, but also remember the ones whom they left behind.
I thank them all and will never forget what they have given for this country - for our America. God bless them each and every one.
