Remembering the fallen today

It's Memorial Day!  
Yes, it will mark the beginning of summer, kicking off with great BBQ's hosted by friends, soaking up the sun at the beach and thinking about where to go on our summer vacation, but it is really a day where we remember the fallen. The men and women who have served in our armed forces, sacrificed their lives in order to protect our freedom. I came across this fantastic article this morning that one of my friends posted on FB. It talks about the difference between Memorial Day and Veteran's Day. Yes, there is a HUGE difference! My husband is a Veteran of the Air Force so we recognize him on Veteran's Day. Not Memorial Day.  
You can click here to read the article that was posted by the United States Air Force. Please take a few moments to read it.  
And I loved this quote my alma mater Azusa Pacific University posted on twitter this morning: 
"Who kept the faith and fought the fight: The glory theirs, the duty ours." - Wallace Bruce
I hope you and your families have a great day and please take a moment to remember the fallen.
