I was raised by parents who are very patriotic.
I have grown up "Loving My Land, America".
Coming from a singing family, it is easy for me to break into song at the sight of the American flag,
or hear a song in my head when I see military personnel in uniform in an airport.
I have also been known to express gratitude to them spontaneously,
for their hard work and sacrifices made to keep someone free.
In Memory of those who have died, serving their country, but more importantly,
providing Freediom from oppressive governments and people.
I have some other thoughts to share, but right now I have some flowers to place on a few graves.
I love this vintage picture that belonged to my husband's Grandmother. I keep it
on the top of my kitchen cabinets to remind me....
Have a Memorable Memorial Day, I will post more later!
Hearts, to My Land American and you, my bloggy friends!
