Constitutional Emergency

Memorial Day... Those who should always be remembered.

Memorial Day... The Day we reserve to remember all of those that have fallen while serving.

I for one think that every day should be reserved for Memorial Day. The sacrifice given by some is one that can never be re-payed and should never be forgotten. The Ultimate Sacrifice that so many have given for out Freedom and the United States of America should be always be given the utmost respect by all.

On this day, who is it that we remember most... Father, Mother, Brother, Sister, Son, Daughter, Grandparent, Uncle, Aunt or Cousin? Maybe a friend went away and came home, but you were only able to say good-bye too. These are the ones that we hold on high on this day, but it should be every day.

I come from a Family full of Military Service, on both sides, and that respect for service members is instilled deep in us all. Family and Friends that have never made it back home to our loving arms, but to a Memorial Service to send them off, until we meet again.

On this Day, I discussed with my son, who is it we are giving the reverence too. We talked about those that had served and some we had lost. The discussion turned to just how many that we had lost, so I thought I would share this with you all.

How to post "live" URL in posts at PFA............. Adding URLs in blog posts that are not "live" is a waste of everyone's time.....
Here's how....if anyone has better guidance send to me.....
First........type your text entry into the post block to include typing or paste the URL you want us to view........when finished with the text, highlight and copy the URL in the text.......then click the "add hyperlink" tool in the B, I, U box just above the text entry, after clicking, a window will open asking for the URL...paste the URL in the box and click "OK". You have now made the URL "live"...........it shows some code before the post is published, it goes away when you "publish post".......
