We take time to stop and remember the sacrifices that have been made for our freedom.
This weekend we remember those who served our country and died in combat. This is the Veteran’s Memorial at the Riverside National Cemetery in Southern California.
There were many sobering monuments at this National Cemetery. The Veterans Memorial was one of them. Another sobering monument was the POW/MIA monument.
We remember that this isn’t just a long weekend and a barbecue but a significant time that has been set aside on our calendars to acknowledge that sacrifices have been made for our nation and our well being.
We do also plan to celebrate the living this weekend with a barbecue timed strategically between the rain showers! What are your plans?
