Memorial Day

The Price of Freedom

   As Americans we hold the right to free speech, 

freedom of assembly, freedom of religion, 

the right to be represented in government, the right to keep and bear arms, 

and the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness above all else. 

The men and women who have fought and died

 in every war and conflict since we won our freedom,
thought that the rights of others, the freedom of their children,

 and the right to choose their own fate,
was far more important than their own lives.

 This is the price paid for your liberty, your freedom, and your way of life.

 Honor this gift because it is

 the Price of Freedom.

Field of Heros - Pocatello, Idaho

On this Memorial Day

we honor all those

 (two and four legged)

that fought and gave their lives

 serving this country. 

May God Bless America

Yesterday was a sad day remembering those that have given their lives. We went to one ceremony and I did not make a sound when Taps were played.
Thanks for being a friend
