We drove by Arlington National Cemetery yesterday just like we do every single day. Mini K knows it is a cemetery for soldiers...and all soldiers are heroes. Memorial Day weekend is like no other in Washington, D.C. due to the motorcyclists. They all park at the Pentagon.
We pass the Pentagon on the way home just after we pass Arlington. Yesterday Mini K asked if all of the motorcyclists were there to say thank you. We told her they were infact there to say thank you. Her response was so simple yet so powerful, heaven has the best soldiers anywhere.
So today on Memorial Day, before you head to the pool, the beach or wherever you are going, remember you are able to go there in freedom and peace because someone paid the ultimate sacrifice for you..without knowing you, but believing in you.
Thank you to all of the men and women in uniform who have served and are serving our country and to their families. We are grateful and humbled by your service!
