Originally called Decoration Day, Memorial Day became a National holiday in 1971 to be celebrated on the last Monday in the month of May. It was a day established to remember those who died serving in the military of the United States.
We here at YDFBlog appreciate ALL the men and women who serve in the US Armed Forces. We Thank You for your service.
Today, however, we pause to pay special tribute to the thousands of men and women who gave their lives while serving in the US military. To those individuals whom we cannot shake hands with today, we take a moment of silence to honor you.
We also want to take a minute to Thank the families of those whose loved ones made the ultimate sacrifice so that you and I could have the freedoms that we take for granted every day. Freedoms which, without their loss, would not be possible for us to have today.
Suggestion: In the spirit of recovery, when we do our service work today, why don't we do something extra for that military widow/widower down the street? Or for that family next door that lost their son or daughter in military service to this nation. Wouldn't it be awesome if we really "got out of ourselves" and "showed" our gratitude for the sacrifice that their loved one made for us?
So just for today, be grateful for the freedoms that we enjoy every day in this nation and remember that it was bought with a great price. Freedom truly isn’t Free!
Join us again soon as we continue Denial.
Until then ....... be sure to tell a friend about us.
Thanks for visiting us - come back soon.
Remember: “It is what it is and “it ain’t nothing but a thing!”
