Tonight as we turn out the lights in our family’s home we said our prayers as we usually do. This night on Memorial Day Eve we prayed for those men and women who had and have the courage to serve our country protecting the freedom’s we have. I encourage all who are celebrating an extra day off to take some time to remember those we gave so much so we can have the blessings we do.
Friends of mine ask me often how to properly celebrate Memorial Day? Well, I’ll leave that answer up to you. Along with the video, I’ll tell you what my family and I do to celebrate Memorial Day. If you have or are starting some family traditions on this day that you would like others to hear to give remembrance please respond with a post and telling about it. Sometimes people don’t do anything thinking what they are doing is not enough. Anything we do to remember the cost of our freedom and pass that message on to our next generations is enough.
God Bless, Steve Leurquin
On Memorial Day Jamie and I take our children to the cemetery. We look at the gravestones that have the American flags posted near them and we talk about those names with our kids. The date they were born and died along with the war they most likely fought in. It is a quiet respectful time as we talk about the families these soldiers left behind paying the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.
