Hey blog public it's Memorial Day. Let's all take time out from hanging around BBQing or sailing or cycling (or blogging!) to remember all those who gave their lives so we could be free to enjoy our lives, today, and every day.
I just checked my blogging "flight" (things I posted on this day, in years past) and came across this post from 2008: dear soldier, a letter written by Meg when she was 11. Pretty poignant. I can only echo what she wrote in her last paragraph:
Thank you for fighting for our rights, our freedom, and our lives as they are today. Thank you for being there for our country.
Happy Memorial Day!
