Though views may differ on the war there is one thing we should all agree on.
That is the support for our troops. The sons and daughters of our families are over there and they need to know that we are behind them. Let us ALL today join together and support our fellow americans who are laying their lives on the line for us. GOD BLESS AMERICA.
"that we here highly resolve that these dead shall have not died in vain - that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth."
We'll have the boys in my Scout Troop out marching in our local Memorial Day service and parade to the cemetary. They'd like it to be just another day off, but, I think we need to help them understand. If we can grow them the right way as boys, it's a lot easier than trying to fix them later as men. Most of them are exhausted from our white water trip down the Kennebeck yesterday, but, they'll be at the Memorial Day services. Our thoughts go out to all those families who have lost men and women in service to our country.
Great parade pictures.
One of my favorite pictures I took a couple of years ago.
