Memorial Day...

Normally we feature an organizational tip or two on Mondays. But with today being Memorial Day, we felt that it would be a good to stop and think about what today really stands for.

While searching for the right words to post today, we ran across this poem and found it very suitable.

The Ultimate Sacrifice:
A Memorial Day Poem
We set aside Memorial Day
Each and every year
To honor those who gave their lives
Defending what we hold dear.

In all the dark and deadly wars,
Their graves prove and remind us,
Our brave Americans gave their all
To put danger far behind us.

They made the ultimate sacrifice
Fighting for the American way;
We admire them and respect them
On every Memorial Day.

By Joanna Fuchs
We'd like to say thank you to those that have served and to those that continue to serve our great Nation. Without you, our lives wouldn't be as they are today.
