Memorial DayMemorial Day means a few things to me. A few things it may or may not mean to other people. Too some people it just might mean that a few good men died. Thats not what it means to me. To me it means that my family my realities my flesh and blood died, died. For what did they die for. Some people would say it was for a bad reason, that fighting for our country never solved anything, while other people might say that if it weren't for everyone who died for our country we might still have slavery. They might even say that we might have gotten taken over by some other source. What I say is that we are here, we are safe, we are free and it feels great.

In the times of war we have to stay close and unite. When it is over we have to stand tall and unite.

We have to look forward and ask our selves how far are we going to go. I tell my self we are in for a long time, as long as we still have people to fight for our country.

I closing this is what Memorial Day means to me. This is the land of the free and home of the proud, I am very proud.
