Always we Remember

" The living owe it to those who cannot speak to tell 

their story for them" 

Czeslaw Milosz

No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.
~James Allen

My late Aunt Betty and late Uncle Tom with their son Wayne who served in Vienam and their small son Darren on the left hand corner...

My Fabulous cousin Wayne
served in the Vietnam war.
Thank you to you all
for fighting for our freedoms and continuing to do so.

Perhaps the best way to honor our veterans would be to re-double our efforts to try to prevent any of our nation's young men and women from being sent off to war again. - Roger Wolsey

Words from my Son:

Things I often take for granted: (a) My health, (b) the love I share with "my people", and (c) being born in a nation that has given me so much opportunity to do whatever I aspire to, given the dedication. The latter would never be possible if it weren't for all those brave souls who stood up and put their lives on the line to make the world a better place.‪#‎Iremember‬
