Memorial Day

Today is a day set aside to remember the sacrifice of our military men and women who upheld the ideal of freedom for those left behind.

My grandfather was a veteran of WWII. He got off the boat in Europe and immediately was sent to what became known as the Battle of the Bulge. He was a Purple Heart recipient but would not talk about his experiences until just a few years before he died. He may not have given his life, but the impact of the war was with him for the rest of his life.

May our nation remain from governmental tyranny, free to worship as we see fit, free to speak our thoughts, free to choose what is best for ourselves and our families.

May God bless the USA

Note: I designed, pieced and quilted this quilt a few years back and my soldier husband claimed it as his own.
