2011 Memorial Day

2011 Memorial Day is a lot different than any other Memorial Day ever for me. My son Justin is in the Army and is in Afghanistan.

Even though my grandfather and great uncles had fought in wars - this time it is much more real. Every day Justin puts his life on the line for my freedom - for yours.

So this year I did something that I had not done in a long time - I visited a cemetery. I did not know any of the soldiers there - but I just felt drawn to go. I took my camera - but mostly I just prayed.

A prayer of gratitude for these men - and a prayer of protection for our soldiers now.

Justin - we are thankful, grateful and proud.
