Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day!  My little family spent our weekend on the shores of Lake Michigan soaking up the warm sun, building countless sandcastles and enjoying the colorful bounty of fruits and vegetables that early summer brings.

Today we honor those that gave their lives in military service.  It is difficult to find the right combination of words to express thanks for such heroes, and for their families who go on without them.  We know that freedom is not without a price, and are forever grateful for their sacrifices.

"The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it."    -Thucydides
