Memorial Day

So here it is Memorial Day 2010. Memorial Day has gotten a little side-tracked with sales and designation as the kick off to summer. It should still be reason to pause and give thanks to our fallen members of the service. We shouldn't take our freedom for granted. Remembering members of your own family or friends, or taking the time to read accounts of the ultimate sacrifice by people in your town in your local paper this weekend make it more personal. And, sadly, war continues. Hopefully you were able to watch a parade, as I did in my community of Wacousta, Michigan. Tomorrow it's back to the farm, but today I rest and give thanks.
