SUNSET SALUTE






Photographed 5/06



Memorial Day - A time to remember those who paid the ultimate price that we may live free and enjoy life as we do. We may not agree on every fight our country takes on but, men and women of our Armed Services were lost defending our way of life. Everyone, please stop for a moment to think about their sacrifice and what it really means to each and every one of us.

May each who has fallen rest in eternal peace.

It makes me a little sad that retailers have turned such a solemn occasion into just another excuse to have a sale there by downplaying the reverence that should accompany this day.

I agree on your comments of commercialism. It has taken over every holiday set aside for a special event and diluted the original cause. It is up to the individual to not loose sight of the meaning.

My husband and I spent the day painting our house. Today we talked about how every Memorial Day might be a good day to invest in our home. When I think about the soldiers and sailors who have fought for us, I'm sure they would think taking care of home and family was the perfect activity to honor their efforts on our behalf.
