We Remember - Memorial Day 2010




Today we remember and honor those men and women in uniform who have died in service to our country.

Presidential Proclamation--Memorial Day 2010
"NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim Memorial Day, May 31, 2010, as a day of prayer for permanent peace, and I designate the hour beginning in each locality at 11:00 a.m. of that day as a time to unite in prayer. I also ask all Americans to observe the National Moment of Remembrance beginning at 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day."

I picked up a couple of those poppies by donating to the local VFW out in force this year. One elderly sweetheart says, "I'll give you a poppy, but you're a rose (for donating)." I'll be darned if I didn't blush! :)
