Lest We Forget.

Monday is Memorial Day in the United States. This day is set aside to commemorate the men and women who have died defending our freedom. No man or woman can give more to their country than their life. These brave and proud soldiers were our fathers, mothers, brother, sisters and children. They came from all races, religions and economic backgrounds. One thing they all had in common was that they were Americans.

The least we can do as Americans is take a day to honor our fallen heroes. During your day off Monday take a few minutes to reflect on just what these men and women have meant to the life we live today.

Maybe someday the world will be a place where we no longer send our children to fight in wars. It feels like that day is in some distant future that is difficult to see. I have the privilege to talk to people in almost every country in the world because of my blog. Most of us just want live, raise our family and enjoy life. Let's pray the worlds leaders have the strength, wisdom and courage to lead us to a world without the death and destruction war inevitably brings.

This pattern is my humble attempt to honor all the soldiers that have given me the opportunity to be free.
