Sacrifice - Day 149

Today is Memorial Day - and the most poignant memorial to our armed forces I have ever been to was at Pearl Harbor when we went to Hawaii. This picture was taken on the Arizona Memorial - and I found myself overwhelmed with emotion for people I had never known who had given their lives for my country. I can only imagine how those who knew them must feel. So today - I am grateful for the sacrifice that so many before made, and so many are now making to defend and protect this land that I live. May I never take it for granted in any way...

“And I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free. And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.”    Lee Greenwood
