Memorial Day 2014

Early this morning, before I went to work, I went to our city's Veterans Park.  It seemed fitting.  I was actually the only one there and it was beautiful, quiet and peaceful. I said a prayer for the families of those who gave their lives for our great nation, a prayer of thanks for all those who have served and also those still in harm's way....just so we can have  this amazing thing called freedom.

I am so thankful for the brave men and women who have uttered and upheld this oath: "I, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."
