Holiday Weekend


Not much of a blog today.  After all, it is a holiday weekend, a time for family, for remembering and for honoring soldiers from all wars who spilled their blood to protect the ideals we cherish.

My dad………WWII, my cousin Dick………..Vietnam……………….soldiers in the Middle East today

 

Over 15 years ago, my son Ben was killed.  The man who did it tossed him in the river.   His friends built a huge cross down at the river where his body was found.    When the City put in new levies and pipes to keep the river from flooding, the cross got knocked down.   Some of his friends who were remembering him this weekend, built a new cross and put it up.
