Poppies and Memorial Day
I have many fond memories of Memorial Day Parades, holding my American Flag, a Poppy pinned to my coat. We would get dressed up and go to the parade. So much fanfare, so exciting. The Marching bands passing by, feeling the drumbeat reverberating within. Honoring our Veterans, showing up to say Thank You.
Do you walk by the men selling the poppies? I hope you don't, when you donate, you are helping disabled Veterans in VA hospitals - you can go here to find out what the Poppies are all about.
Please be respectful of our Veterans, they have given much. Much more than one can imagine.
