Rememberance Day

I have always felt it very important to make sure my children know exactly how they were free to make the choices they make. To remember and respect the fallen soldiers, navy officers, fighter pilots, and the veterans  of all that are still with us.  I want my kids to appreciate and never take for granted the sacrifice so many made for us. What I failed to think about was the soldiers still doing it.  This year at the school's Remembrance Day program they showed a short film set to music of many soldiers, in WWI and WWII, but also many out right now.  I am so thankful to all of them.  Thankful to those that leave their families so I can stay with mine.  Thankful for all they gave so I could live in a free country.  For guarding the land I live in and for fighting for me.  Seeing that film really put a new perspective on it for me. They laid down their life so I could live mine.  Thank you.  Thank you. For all you did and all you still do.  I remember and am teaching my children to remember.  I honor each and every one of you today and every day.  Thank you.
