    Default Happy Memorial Day!

    Happy Memorial Day!

    Lest we forget--let's take a moment to reflect upon the men and women who died in battle for our civil rights, liberties, and way of life!

    God Bless America!

    Merchants always want people to have the "Christmas Spirit" all year round. That usually means 'buy our cheaply made fad products that will break in 2 days" all year round. But Memorial Day is different. Memorial Day really does stand for an appreciation that we should express for more than just one day.

    We've seen the devastation that can happen by turning our backs on our soldiers when we don't approve of the war or the politicians who sent them to battle. We should never make that mistake again.

    It's as simple as a sincere "thank you for your service."

    If you're looking for a good cause to become involved with or just to get information on how you can help, I would suggest the Wounded Warrior Project, but there are many other ways for you to get information and get involved.

    Amen to that. Besides the millions that have fallen to give us the freedom we enjoy today, there are several hundred thousand in harm's way right now. And every one of them is just hoping to get back to their families safely, and that will be THEIR treasure.

    Hat's off to all who have served, in any time, in any capacity.

    Default my greatest tresure

    I guess I would say my greatest treasure would be to have my sister back by the fourth of July. She spent 6 months in Afghanistan, was home for 5 and in Iraq for the last year. She will most likely go back to one or the other within 6 months again, but that's the joy of being with the 10th Mountain Division. Our friend just left leaving a wife and four children behind, so we pray for him as well. Thank you Mr. Whiskers for setting this thread up. I did the same on another site because too many people were "treasure" crazy and forgot how important today was. I spent it with my kids and husband, ending it with a glorious squirt gun fight. We went to a horse show, shopped a little, went out to eat, and now I'm off to bed. I thank God and our soldiers for giving me that freedom. I know not until all people are as free as we will we really have found treasure.
    God does bless America. How lucky we are for that.
