When I think of Memorial Day and what it means to me, I think of how blessed I am to live in this country, where freedom still rings, even though at times we may abuse some of the freedoms we have. I think of the fallen soldiers who've paid the ultimate price that we might continue to live free, even though we so often take our freedom for granted. I also think of the families, friends and loved ones of the fallen, the unsung heroes struggling to survive in the face of unspeakable loss. I cannot imagine the depth of their pain. I don't know how to thank them for their sacrifice, save to say that I am deeply grateful ~ and promise to remember them, as I hold each and every one of them in gentle thought and prayer.
