remembering on memorial day... please read

Memorial day is a day to remember those who have fallen in service of not only our country, but in service of freedom. I also give thanks and remembering to those who serve our country and freedom today, for freedom will always have to be fought for.

I would like to remember my father, who served in the Air force. I hope he is smiling down on me as I write this.

My father was a good man, who beleived in freedom, beleived in this country, and beleived that a man takes care of his own, and does his best to help those who cannot help themselves. I don't remember this man, my father, i only have what is told to me by my family. he worked day and night to provide for us, and died when i was only three. it pains me that i will not know him in this life, but find tranquility in the fact that i will be able to shake his hand in the next. My father was a great man, and even though i cannot remmeber him through my own eyes, the things that he did will resonate through many lives, like ripples in a pond.

I know many of you have served, have lost loved ones who have served, and still more who have done their duty, and come home. may god bless them and those who served and paid the ultimate price to protect the very freedoms we hold dear.

Please post those who you will be remembering on memorial day, so we may remember them with you.
