Happy Memorial Day!

Remembering and giving honor to men and women who served the country. Giving their time and heart and most of all sacrificed their lives in order for us to enjoy what we have now, freedom. Although, I am not an American citizen I still give thanks and honor them. Why? Because United States of America has been a long time friend and allied of the Philippines. I also have American family and friends who served  and are still serving the country which I and my family are now living. 

So to the heroes of this country, the military personnel and all who gave up their lives in military service for this country, living here and outside the state. Happy Memorial Day!! Your heroic services and courageous acts were not forgotten.

  1. Yes, Memorial Day marks the start of summer--and to my Mom's generation (she is 91) it is also the day you can start wearing white again! I am so glad times have changed--I grew up not allowed to wear white before Memorial Day!!
