Memorial Day

I was browing around on Facebook earlier today -- and how often do you find anything good on Facebook, right? One of my former teachers posted a cartoon. In the first frame, entitled "Question," was a family at a grill. A little boy was handing his dad some hot dogs while asking, "How much did all this cost?" The second frame, called "Answer," showed a row of tombstones with an American flag planted in front.

How true! We owe so much to the soldiers who gave up everything to defend the freedom of the greatest nation on earth. In closing is this very appropriate verse from "Chicken Fried" by the Zac Brown Band:
"I thank God for my life; for the Stars and Stripes
May Freedom forever fly; let it ring!
Salute the ones who died; the ones who gave their lives,
So we don't have to sacrifice all the things we love!"
Thank you, servicemen and women!
