Memorial Day is the time that we set aside to remember those who have fallen in war that others may live. The day brings to mind why those brave souls put themselves in harm's way. Irrespective of whether or not blood of warriors was betrayed by politicians, the sacrifice that they made is worthy of memory as is their motivation.
They did it for our homeland, our children, grandchildren and their examples provide the grist for a life of duty and sacrifice.
Photos of three of my grandsons at the Blueberry Farm (near where they live). I've harvested blueberries with the kids, that inevitably make their way into pancakes, for a few years now. Defending them and their future - It's one of those things that we do.
