ABOUT THIS WEEKEND

When we consider Memorial Day for what it is, it is a sad time.
We do not celebrate it in a sad way.
This is a strange contradiction, which could be played many ways.
I am sure that for those of fallen service personnel, the weekend has a different meaning than it does for you and I...
To us, it is like, yeah, the summer has begun! The beaches, lakes, pools, and, other summer activities are out the gate on this weekend. Amazing, isn't it....
I hope that those who have to mourn again on this weekend, will have some time for reflection of the wonderful times as well. I pray that your long weekend will not be full of tears, or pain, but, full of the many times before tragedy struck... God bless you always....
For the rest of us, get out there and enjoy. Mark the beginning of the rest of the season. Have a great time and, say a prayer for those who have paid the price for the right of all others to have the freedom to do as they will....
Happy Memorial Day weekend to one and all... Peace out.....

excellent way to word this weekend. I am one of the "yeay its a four day weekend" people, so I gues I am also one of the people that needed this kind of reminder as to what this day really is.

Thank you
