Happy Memorial Day

I always remember this day because they would hand out poppies for donations to our armed services causes. I always called it poppy day. It was inspired by a Moina Michael poem called "In Flanders Fields". Click here for a bit of history on Memorial Day.

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

Here's to everyone and their families who died for our freedom and liberties.
