Memorial Day 2012

You might have some big plans for Memorial Day Weekend…headed to the beach or a barbecue…

I’m trying to come up with some plans…but also trying to figure out a way to explain the day to my kids, the real reason why they have a day off of school.

You know we used to live just outside of Washington D.C.  And I remember driving into the city, for parades, to a museum, or to pick up family at the airport, and on the way we would pass the Pentagon, pass by Arlington National Cemetary, and I’m embarrassed to say it became normal to drive by a sea of white crosses, like we were passing the mall. 

I wish I could back and now and every time we drove by explain to the kids that it was because of those white crosses, each life, sacrificed for their freedom.  

If you have someone you want to remember this Memorial Day…let me know. Visit my Facebook page or call me at 800-900-1300.

Even though every male in my family has served their country through military service; none have died in any recent wars. But they are gone just the same. This Memorial day I am going to honor my father mother and little brother as their lives all ended early. And I appreciate the sacrifice they made in making me a better person. Thanks Mom, Dad, and Lil Bro, I hope to see you soon.
