Memorial Day

Today and for the last couple of days I have been trying to explain Memorial day to my kids. How we are remembering the men and women who have given their lives to make this country the way it is. Something I need to get better at is taking them to do one of the following:

* by visiting cemeteries and placing flags or flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes.

* by visiting memorials.

This would be a visual reminder of the situation and help them remember it. Until I can get my act together better and do this, words and stories will have to do.

God Bless our protectors that have given their all for this country.
