Happy Memorial day to you all.  I hope that all of you are enjoying your cookouts, family functions, and day off with pay.  I do ask though that while you are enjoying this well deserved break from the monotony of everyday life that you remember the meaning behind the holiday.  Freedom is not something that comes without a price, many men and women have given their lives and limbs to keep this country going over the past 230 years.  This isn't meant to be a downer post, and I am in no way a promoter of the war in which we find ourselves, BUT I am the child of a strong military background and the child of a vietnam vet who still has health problems due to his time spent in that war.  I'm also married to a man who's family has strong ties to the American Legion hierarchy. So take a minute during your busy holiday and just say thank you to a Vet, they are the true meaning of this holiday. Namaste
