Memorial Day

I do not think that the phrase "Happy Memorial Day" is appropriate. This is the day we honor the soldiers who fought and died for our freedom.  It is not a happy day. It is a sad, yet proud day.

My dad fought in World War II. He still has horrible memories and he lost his brother during the war in the Fiji islands. Yes my uncle received a Purple Heart for his bravery. Of course, I never got to meet him.

So to my uncle Robert Cole and my dad George Cole, and all the soldiers whether dead or alive, fighting now or years ago, thankyou for fighting for my freedom!

Peace to all on Memorial Day!
