With much gratitude

On this Memorial Day, I have taken the time to reflect on my family members and friends who have served my country. I always wonder what makes a person choose this life. I wonder no more. They are born to others are born to be the opposite. Our paths are all different, but we must follow our path for our own peace.

I have 4 sons. A Marine that will be back at Camp LeJeune within the month. He has been to Iraq once and knows he will be going again. He has a beutiful wife and 3 daughters. He was born to be a Marine. I have a National Guard son. He is still in trainng. His best friend leaves in January for a tour in Iraq. My other 2 sons have not chosen their path yet (young) but they will and I hope whatever they choose it will be with much conviction. My grandfather fought in 2 wars and has passed. My uncle was an Air Force fighter. Many friends of mine have sons and husbands and brothers who have fought the fight.

I honor all service men and women today. They make my life liveable.
