Memorial Day

So many times we forget the true meaning of this day. We celebrate the "official" beginning of summer, we party, shop and picnic. We need to remember what this day is all about. We need to honor our men and women who have fought and died for our freedom. We need to honor those men and women who today are fighting for and protecting our freedom. I try every time I see a service man or woman to thank them for their service and keeping me free. We don't know what we have until it is taken away from us. We need to remember that and make sure our politicians do their job and protect our country. If they don't do the job, then they need to be removed. Don't be fooled by eloquent speech, make sure you know the truth behind the words.

I received an email the other day which described a person who was an eloquent speaker, who promised to be for the people. A person who by his words seemed to be perfect for what his country needed at the time. We all had in our minds who this person was as we read the description, the shocker was when you got to the end of this email the person being described was Adolf Hitler. We all know what happened when he came to power. It was our brave men and women who helped to overpower this evil and restore truth and democracy to the world. Let us make sure we are not fooled by pretty words and empty actions, this could happen to us and who would fight for us?

Now that I got that off my chest, I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day and enjoy the pictures of my Clematis.
