Memorial Day 2013

They fought for our precious Freedom of Speech..
Yet we get scared and stay Silent.

They fought for our precious Constitution..
while most of own children haven’t a clue about it.

They fought and died to offer us Freedom of the Press…
as our very own media aids and abets our sworn enemies.

They fought to offer us a government which serves the people…while our fellow citizens vote for a terrorist enabler, Dictator wanna be.

I apologize to the memory of all the soldiers and their sacrifices……

I promise I will
never give up the good fight.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Bless them and bless you all Sweet Friends.

Thank you for your service and may God bless you George.
You are not forgotten.


If you are ashamed to stand by your colors, you had better seek another flag.

    I promise NOT to give up the fight, either.

    Have a great Memorial Day weekend, too, Angel! And to all those who served, a sincere “Thank you for your service!”

    Angel, thank you for such a beautiful post (as usual). I especially liked “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
    love leaves a memory no one can steal.”

    As a veteran myself, I can tell you that words like yours mean the world to us. Thank you for all you do too.

    In a little while, I’m going to the cemetery where my parents are buried. My peonies are in full bloom!

    Neither Mom nor Dad served in the military, but they supported our military in other ways. In addition, both had in their extended families loved ones who served.

    Anyway, among the flowers that I will be putting on the grave is an American flag (vase size). Many of those buried in this particular cemetery served in our armed forces.

    Have a blessed Memorial Day, Angel!

    Thank God for these men and women who take care of our country. Where would we be without them?

  16. Leticia says:

    Thank you for this beautiful and fitting tribute. People need to remember what Memorial Day is.

    I have a hard time when I hear someone say, “Happy Memorial Day.” It’s a day to remember our fallen heroes, our heroes, period.

    I apologize if that offended anyone.
