Grateful

On this Memorial Day I like to sit and ponder a bit about what the holiday is all about. To express my sincere gratitude to all of the men and woman who have lost their lives defending our country, as well as those still in battles across the world. Freedom is so easily taken for granted as we go about our everyday lives. I think it's good to remind ourselves periodically about what this great country is all about and how fortunate we are to live in these United States. When my grandparents immigrated from Norway and Denmark in the early 1900's, they were so proud to become citizens of this great country and seek out their American Dream. My father, my father-in-law, as well as my mother-in-law all fought in WWII and fortunately returned home safely. For those who did not, as well as their family members, I just want to say thank you for the sacrifice they made to make this country what it is today for all of us to enjoy.
