Memorial Day is to recognize those who died in the defense and service of our country. I say there were plenty who died physically and plenty who died spiritually and emotionally. Death isn’t just about the body perishing it’s about leaving a part of one’s soul on the field of battle. We must remember those who died in more than one way today. Those who returned from war must be comforted and cared for along with those they left behind. Even those who died in a different way need love, care and support.
I wish there was a setting that would prevent selected blogs from being reblogged by other users. Personally I don’t reblog a lot of stuff because I believe in generating original content. I will only reblog something if it fits in the philosophy of my blog. There is some value in reblogging because of the traffic it generates but there is also a creepy aspect about re-posting something personal from another blogger. With a little imagination and creativity people can do amazing work.
Memorial Day is a time to honor fallen members of the military in the United States of America. This song by Billy Ray Cyrus just seems to capture the spirit and the somberness of the holiday very well. He tells a great story in this song. Some gave all, we must remember.
