Remember when...

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it"
-George Santayana

"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."
-George Orwell

Today is Memorial Day.
For many, today is a day for picnics and barbeques, going to the beach with friends.
A holiday from work.


How easily we forget those who've made sacrifices to grant us these moments of joy.
Those who've given their lives, that we may enjoy ours.
Those that fight, on a daily basis, for the freedoms we take for granted.

My grandfathers both served our country.
One during World War II, the other during the Korean War.


My friends serve our country today.

Thank you.
