Memorial Day ( or No Jokes Today)

Thank you for your service!

Thank you for your service!


The Memorial Day weekend looms before us.  Great sales on cars, furniture, everything we need!  And talk about the BBQ, it is the official kick-off day to prepare that grill and cook up your favorite vegetables and meats.

Great fun really, but that is just the frosting on the day.

Memorial Day is when we remember the men and women who overcame adversity and offered theirs lives for the rest of us.  Whether you agree with the conflicts, wars or whatever you want to call them, our soldiers stood tall.

This weekend, let’s stand for them.

Enjoy your BBQ, get a great deal on something, but never forget that freedom is not free.  Not then, not now.  Hopefully someday it will, but until then, we stand ready.

G-d bless you all.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day.  Today is set aside for us to remember all of those that fought while wearing our country’s uniform.

I have a great deal of respect for the men and women who serve this great nation every day.  Putting themselves in the line of danger to protect us and keep us free.

As an older man, I now realize that the wars will never end.  There will always be conflict between those who would destroy our liberties and ourselves.  And many more young men and women will die.

There is nothing I can do to change that.

But the ideal and Dream must be kept alive for our children and beyond.  All men deserve a chance to make it or break it on their own.  On their terms.  And that cannot happen if opression is given free run over the world.  Some cannot fight, many are too frightened to fight.

We are the Land of the Free because of the Brave.  Where darkness lurks, we shall shine a light to drive it away.

Thank you.  Thank you to everyone serving and that has served in the defense of this great country, who is will to risk all to give a chance to the rest.

Thank You to all of you that served

And a prayer for our departed friends.

God Bless America and Those that Serve.


Remember, now and always.
