Ok, it’s Memorial Day Weekend and some people have scheduled travel, a barbeque, a golf outing, etc. Though all of these activities are a great way to relax over this typically long weekend, many tend to forget or not even know what this day is all about. Memorial Day is celebrated on the last Monday in May, on which those who died in active military service are remembered.
Too many of us fail to realize that our freedom is not so free. There’s been untold carnage paving the way for us to be able to enjoy our casual “freedoms”. As you head out to your particular event, take the time this weekend to remember some of the lives that have been lost. Celebrate and have a great time and please…
DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE!!! As they say, the life you save, may be your own.
As a tribute to those who have lost their lives defending this country, AMERICA, I am posting this video of one of the greatest voices of our time singing the most memorable version of THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER that I’ve ever heard. Whitney Houston first sang her flawless version of our National Anthem before Super Bowl XXV on Jan. 27, 1991 in Tampa, Florida.
In the video above, Whitney sings her heart out for the troops live at her 1991 “Welcome Home Heroes” concert in Norfolk, Virginia, USA.
In her memory and in the memory of those whose blood has been shed to defend our freedoms, I leave you with this post.
