Let's Celebrate, Honor and Remember. Memorial Day Monday May 30th 2016

"And I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free. And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me" - Lee Greenwood.

Memorial Day is a day to remember the men and women of the military who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. I received an email not too long ago asking why I would design a pattern that celebrates war. I'll have to admit that got me a little hot under the collar. No civilized person celebrates war.

I am an unapologetic patriot but I believe in this quote from Mark Twain "Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it."

There is a big difference in supporting a war and supporting the men and women who fight in those wars. Some wars are necessary and some are just folly. I will always design patterns that show my support and honor for the young men and women in our military. I'm sure that will bother some readers but in the words of Popeye "I is who I is."

I wish everyone a great Holiday weekend here in the U.S. Travel safe.
