Yes! That is a lot of people. That equates to the entire population of Dallas, Texas. It is hard for me to take in. This is not a celebration. It is a day to remember. A day to honor the fallen. Those who gave all. A friend of mine, who is also a veteran, posted on Facebook this morning, "Please remember there is a difference between Memorial Day and Veteran's Day. God Bless America! I bow my head in reverence to my brother's and sisters in arms, who have paid the ultimate price." Dawn May White
Let us not forget what that price has meant to those left behind. Bow your head today and take a moment to thank those who have paid the ultimate price for you. I already have.
