It used to be called Decoration Day when I was young. After church there would be 'dinner on the grounds' and then flowers placed on graves. Now on this day we honor those who have fought and many died for what we seem to value so litttle and will barter for 'political correctness'. Our American freedoms. Farmers and businessmen laid down their plowshares and ledgers, picked up arms and fought the Revolutionary War to secure that freedom for us . I pray that they and those who have died for that same cause since then, did not pay that ultimate price to leave us the precious legacy of freedom and we let it slip away.
God bless all our veterans, those who live and those who rest in the places pictured here - Honor them
