memorial day...

I just wanted to pause a moment to remember all those soldiers lives that were lost in the war...they died for me, my family, you and your families and for our freedom...
i've been to the vietnam memorial wall in washington d.c., and it's overwhelming and left me speechless...
we went to the arizona memorial in hawaii last summer and it also left a huge impact on me...
to all of those families that have lost a loved one in a war...i'm so sorry for your loss but forever grateful as we are blessed to live in a land of the free...
my dad served in the korean war and i remember some of the stories he shared with me...
if i had it my way, there would be no war...
blessings...
xoxo
