Memorial Day

I will never forget the feeling I had when I first saw the American Cemetery at Normandy in France. 

I was just out of high school.
 I remember being in awe of the vast numbers of soldiers who lost their lives fighting for the freedom of others.
 I remembered seeing the Star of David for the first time on some graves.
 I remember reading the handout that listed the names. 
 I was saddened by the numbers of brothers...of fathers and sons...who gave their lives as Americans.  
I am honored and humbled by their sacrifice as well as that of their families. 
Today we honor our soldiers...from every battle...areound the world...who died for us.

It truly is amazing isn't it? We live such comfortable lives now, it's very hard to remember, I think :(.
