This Memorial Day edition is for everyone that loves America, the Spirit of Freedom and those that gave their life defending it. Memorial Day is a day we as the country come together to honor and remember our servicemen and women who served and paid the ultimate price. I asked a 6th grader what it meant to her; she said it meant she had a day off of school. Are we teaching our youth how much was sacrificed to have the freedoms we have today? I asked a 14 year old, he said there should be no wars. We should just worry about ourselves and let other countries take care of their own problems and so many Americans wouldn’t have had to die. What does Memorial Day mean to you? Let’s talk about it…

Linda Hanna Padowitz:
“Thank you to all heroes for our freedom. May you all Rest In Peace in Our Heavenly Father’s arms. Sending prayers to all your families with thanks for a heartbreaking sacrifice”

Ken Turner:
“Rest In Peace Warriors. God Bless America”

Patty Grubb:
“RIP brave soldiers and thank you for your service”

Laurie Hansen:
“Thank you for paying the ultimate sacrifice! May God be with your family & friends!”

Carol Grubbs:
“ I can’t imagine how awful this must be for their families and friends. I am in awe of our men and women in uniform, who serve our country. They will not be forgotten.”

Roger Eloise:
“Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, it’s honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that’s a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It’s a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it.”

Gerald Alaniz:
“As America celebrates Memorial Day, we pay tribute to those who have given their lives in our nation’s wars.”

Veronica Castillo:
“Memorial Day this year is especially important as we are reminded almost daily of the great sacrifices that the men and women of the Armed Services make to defend our way of life.”

Angela Jones:
“There is nothing nobler than risking your life for your country.”

Juan J. Gonzales:
My biased opinion: Memorial Day is the “Unofficial Beginning of Summer” without reflection to many. To me it’s a day to Reflect on how many have sacrificed their lives for the Freedom we enjoy so freely.

Mary Svetlik Watkins:
“It’s a day to honor the brave men and women who gave the ultimate gift to our nation so that we have the rights we do. We can gripe and complain and call our politicians names because brave soldiers paid with their lives.”

Steve Walker:
“As a Vietnam Veteran who was spit on twice and asked if I napalmed babies as I got off the plane on my return, this is the time to thank a vet, not spit on them.”
