Honor those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom.

Reach out to the families of the fallen.

Remember those who are in harm’s way.

Do something to help their families here at home.

  1. Great reminder! Thank you! Memorial Day should be about honoring memories of those who gave their lives for us and to honor those who fight for our freedom today! Unfortunately, too many people think it’s about picnics and sales!

    Love you,

  2. I’ll be asking the Senate Armed Services Committee why and how they can sit behind closed doors and decide that more than 23,000 military children do not deserve the medical treatments they need.

    Thanks, Jess!

  3. I’ve seen the pic of the man in the wheelchair before and it always gets me.
    Decided it was high time I dipped my toe back into blogging and wanted to say hi and send love. Hope all is well with you and yours. xo
