Memorial Day Weekend

I spoke with my 75 year old father yesterday. I was doing some morning errands before coming in to the Rock Penthouse. He was driving my mom and my grandmother (the big 90!) to the cemetery to place flowers on graves in recognition of Memorial Day.

Even back when Francis Scott Key penned the Star Spangled Banner, honoring our soldiers was important. The next time you stop to listen to it, remember that the last line is actually a question...

"Oh say, does that Star Spangled Banner yet wave over the land of the free and the home of the brave?"

Yes, it most certainly does...and I love it dearly.  

Take a moment this weekend to find a flag and think about what it means to us all. A lot of blood has been spilled so that we can do exactly what we want to do this weekend.

God Bless the land of the free and the home of the brave!
