Living overseas, it is easy to forget about a particular holiday. It was past noon today before I remembered it was Memorial Day.
That is one holiday that should not be forgotten–especially by me. I am increasingly aware of the fact that the reason I have the freedom to do what I do is because of the men and women who have shed their blood down through the years to preserve it.
The drawing below by Cox and Forkum illustrates well the sacrifice.
May their struggle not be in vain.
