God Bless America

  This weekend the country will observe Memorial Day.  It's more than parades, family cookouts, and trips to the cemetary.  All of us probably know of a friend or family member who has served in the military.  We are lucky enough to live in a country where we can hate war, and still support our troops and their families.
   We get to go to a cookout and enjoy ourselves, even if half the crowd disagrees with our political opinions.  I like to say "it won't be the last time that two very intelligent people totally disagree on an issue."  This weekend let's all sing the national anthem at sporting events, even if we are watching on TV.  Light a candle to remember our relatives who have passed. 
  We can keep the memory of loved ones alive by telling a story about them.  Have everyone go around and tell something about relatives no longer with us.  Being serious and respectful, does not have to mean sad.  Every time we have done this, we end up laughing, and feeling more connected as a family.  Isn't that what it's all about??
  Have a good week long for now
