Memorial Day to me is honoring and remembering those that lost their lives in service of the United States of America.
After reading Herb Thiel’s Post on Memorial Day, I found it well written and informative.
I did not realize that the US government covered up the deaths of so many people to include a relative of mine as referenced in his post.
The government system is ran by men, and a perfect system can only come from God. While it has it’s flaws, I live in the best country in the world.
It my honor and privilege to elevate service members that shed their blood for our freedoms on Memorial Day.
Too often we see the colors at half mast from our fallen. On Memorial Day, I simulated putting my flag at half mast and raised high the colors, red, white, and blue for those passing by to see. While I do not have indepth knowledge of presenting the flag, I found it fitting to do so. Upon reading Herb Thiel’s post, Inwas not too far off the mark.
She is a grand flag, meant to be flown high.
Brother’s Campfire welcomed all to the Campfire on Memorial Day, and I needed an epic breakfast to pull me through for the preparation ahead.
I mowed the lawn, cleaned the yard, fed the birds and went to the store more times than I could count in preparation for the big day. I also found it necessary to keep the hawks away from my ducklings. Here is a link to see them!
Due to social distancing concerns, I did not invite as many folks as normal to the Memorial Day picnic.
The Campfire was ignited and several families attended.
Herb Thiel from Prudentia Sit was in attendance and we asked him to give a blessing for the food. He agreed, and we proceeded to eat!
Hamburgers, hotdogs, German potato and pasta salad, Doritos, and soda were on the menu! I was way too in the moment eating to capture it all. You should have been there and you are invited next time.
Having a celebrity with me, I could not help filming the event. Here is a short clip of the event.
I hope your Memorial Day was fantastic! Let know how your day went in the comments below!
