Happy Memorial Day

This is still true today.  Carpool and save vital resources. 
Donate to Marine Personnel HERE.
Donate to the Navy Memorial Fund HERE.
Still stands true today.  For more info on donating books go HERE.
To send a service man or woman a "care-package" go HERE.

Freedom is NOT free.   
More than 1,200,000 Americans have died since the Revolutionary War. 
Remember the freedoms you have that others have sacrificed for.
Be grateful.
No matter where you are in the world today, 
be grateful for what you have and for those who've gone before us.

Beautiful post. So many of us get wrapped up in the bbqs and beach trips and forget the true meaning of Memorial day.
