Building Memorials…

flag

We can never forget what soldiers have sacrificed so that we could have the freedom to live in the United States of America. Some of us know, firsthand, the loneliness we felt when loved ones accepted their duty to serve and protect us. It meant that family and friends were separated; it required missing the everyday mundane events that shaped our childhoods. Piece by piece, joy faded as we continued to hope for their safe returns. For so many, it didn’t happen.

I can see the United States flag wave proudly, reminding me that although we did lose so many soldiers, they willingly chose to serve their country.

Today, we give honor to those men and women who laid down their lives so that we could have a better life. In the midst of all the celebrations, picnics, and fellowship, keep in mind the ones who paid the price for your pleasure.

Let’s not forget to remember.

About gracemorganwriter

What is a writer? Someone who writes. For me, writing means to observe the world in a fresh way; it gives us encouragement when we are struggling to follow the path, and hope that we can keep pressing towards the mark. Writing gives us grace for the journey, and shines light into the darkened places of our soul.
