Memorial Day

I have many memories about Memorial Day.  My grandfather was a WWI veteran and I can remember him proudly marching in our city's Memorial Day parade.  When he could know longer walk the route, I recall him riding in a convertible down Main Street.  I eventually marched that same route in our high school's marching band.  We would stop at a small cemetery near the end of the route where a lone trumpet player would play Taps.  I had forgotten until typing this how much that touched me. 

Pray for our military men and women as they continue to fight for our freedom.
