Remember

Memorial Day is a day to remember the sacrifices of those wh0 have paid freedom’s price.  I hope you pause sometime over this 3 day weekend to remember the hardships, the heartaches, and the acts of heroism that have sustained the liberties we enjoy.

Very few of us are enough of a history buff to connect the last days of the month of May to the evacuation of Dunkirk in 1940.  I would encourage you to read this link that provides an interesting account of the pivotal events that transpired on these historic dates.

While World War II might predate many of us, the events of 911 are etched in the memories of more than just a few who will read this blog.  I was sent a link to a YouTube video a couple of months ago, and the events of this video made me think of Dunkirk.  I encourage you to watch this goosebump-producing video by clicking here.

Both the article and the video I shared are a testimony to the power of the human spirit.  I hope the sacrifices of Dunkirk in 1940 and the heroes of 911 are enough to keep you thinking and remembering.
