Memorial Day 2011

I'm so thankful for our military, and I thank God for them. Though we celebrate Veterans Day in November, to me every day is Veterans Day. Today is a special day when we remember those that didn't come home, the ones that gave the very last measure for our freedom. The empty chair at the dinner table; The look in a child's eyes that asks, "Why?"; The families forever changed; The folded flag in the living room. The rows upon rows of somber markers standing guard over our sleeping heroes;  We remember those who never got a chance to come back, and now rest in foreign lands. Today, I want to take time and say thank you, and most importantly, YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN...
