Motivational Monday, Memorial Day...Find the cost of freedom, buried in the ground

"Find the cost of freedom, buried in 
the ground."

Today is Memorial day, this is the day when we should take some time our of our day to remember the lives of our servicemen and women and honor them.  Some gave the ultimate sacrifice so we can enjoy today, and every other day.

Memorial Day, the price that is paid


No matter what your plans are, I hope everyone has an enjoyable Memorial Day weekend, and that you are able to enjoy some of the activities that will be going on in you community and with your families.
