Monday is Memorial Day in the USA where those who served and sacrificed everything in the military are remembered and honored. A solemn and serious time of reflection and honor to those who are no longer with us because they died for their nation.
It is my hope that those who have served and sacrificed over the past few years have done so for all Americans. Freedom and liberty are two words used a lot in the USA and it doesn’t seem everyone has access to those ideals that many people hold fast to their heart and soul.
Yes, I am a liberal but I respect those who chose to wear the uniform of this nation. Not everyone can or will make that choice and its an individual decision. Also not everyone is suited for this type of service. For those who serve who are also a part of the LGBTQ community thank you for being on the wall, on the front lines and doing so even though many in this country hates you just for being who you were born to be.
Let’s remember those who gave all but strive to make that sacrifice worth it for everyone. It’s the American way isn’t it?
Many of us are in the grips of some really cold weather. The northern USA and southern Canada especially. May this picture remind you of warmer days and make you think warm thoughts. Stay safe everyone who are suffering sub-zero conditions right now.
Most of America will be going back to standard time tomorrow. That means they will set their clocks back one hour before going to bed tonight and getting an extra hour of sleep. Don’t forget my friends to do this before turning in for the night. While you are at it check your smoke alarm batteries and other devices too.

In November there will be a mid-term election in the United States where state and federal elected offices will be decided. WordPress has posted a link on the reader dashboard to help those who haven’t registered to vote as of yet.
My friends this election coming up is important and if you are in the United States and have not registered to vote do so now. There is a lot at stake.

Today in the USA we honor our presidents. Originally it was two separate holidays to honor Washington and Lincoln. A few years ago it expanded to honor them all.
