This Memorial Day please remember what’s really important. The day isn’t all about shopping and picnics and taking trips to the beach. Today we should take the time to think about all the sacrifices that our service members make everyday to ensure our freedom. Also remember those that have made the ultimate sacrifice. Thank you to my husband and all the other heroes who provide me with a safe place to live and allow me to live in a free country. Freedom is not a right, it is a privilege. Special thoughts and prayers go out to my Gold Star family friends. I admire your strength, your courage, and your ability to keep moving on despite your loss.
