Memorial Day, a day set aside to remember those that gave their lives for our country. Today I was reading in the paper that there is an objection about President Obama sending a wreath to honor the Confederate lives that were lost during the Civil War. Why the objection? Because they were Southerns (or Northerners) that fought for the Confederacy? Does that make them any less than someone who died for their country?
Today I honor all that have fought in the American military that have died in all wars. I know they cannot hear me as they have gone to their grave. I humbly bow my head in thanks for giving me the right to live here in America.
