Let us use the freedoms they defended and implore God to bless all our Veterans.
But don’t stop there.
Let’s all do as He asks.

I come from a long line of patriots. service persons and first responders. Remembering what Memorial Day is actually about is not an annual event in my circles. We remember our fallen frequently, all year around.

Please take time to reflect upon the sacrifices made for the freedoms we enjoy and too often take for granted.
