As you are facing Memorial Day, remembering the ones who fought for our freedom, I am in England remembering also. Many British soldiers lost their lives, too, for the same cause in some of the same wars.
Before I left, I put out 39 flags on the graves of soldiers in the Gibsland Cemetery. The wars/battles/conflicts span from the Civil War to the present. I imagine the stories of the ones who entered the fray. Many no longer have family members near to relate the tales of the faithful heroes in our small town.
I thank God for our country, the men and women defending it today, and for the ones in the past who made it possible for us to practice freedom.
