It’s that time of year. The Official start of summer and more importantly a day to remember those that sacrificed their lives in defense of our Country. To many it’s a chance to get a good deal on a washing machine. Perhaps a reduced price for some new sheets and towels.

Recently Widowed Wife And Infant. No Explanation Needed

The reason you can shop, have cook-outs and get togethers is the reason we all should just stop for a moment and thank our veterans. Both living and dead. Gonna bet everyone knows of a family member, friend, schoolmate or just some kid that lived down the block who served. Some came home in a flag draped coffin.

That flag is probably folded and placed in a frame with the stars showing. Mine sits above the door to my office in remembrance of my Dad and Mom. Both of whom served.

Reflections…A Vietnam Vet stops at the wall to say thanks and reflect on his service and the service of those that paid the ultimate price. Pray for peace.

Carry On!
