Figuring it out one day at a time.

Memorial Day: My kids will know

1 Comment

My kids will know that this is not just the day the pool opens for the summer.

My kids will know that this is not just a day off from school.

A weekend of great sales.

Or a day to wear patriotic t-shirts,

Shoot off fireworks,

And wave an American flag.

 

My kids will know why they wave that American flag.

They will know that men and women fought for their freedom.

That lives were sacrificed so that they can be free.

That their Uncle, and grandfather, and great grandfathers served for this country.

That lives were lost so that they can go to school and learn about the world.

Proudly wave our flag.

And go relax by the pool on this very first day of summer.

My kids will know that their freedom was not free.

That this is not just a day of baseball and BBQ’s.

But that freedom came with a cost.

My children will know.

 

Will yours?
