Memorial Day

5.30.2011

To many people, Memorial Day is just another holiday that lets them have a three day weekend. But to military families it’s much more than that. It’s a day to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice. It’s also a day to honor their families who have paid a huge price for our freedom.

If you’re interested in knowing more about some of the families who have lost their loved ones, you should check out the American Widow Project. It was started by Taryn Davis, who lost her husband when she was just 23 years old.  On the site you can read  their stories and you can find links to their blogs. I think reading about these strong women really puts Memorial Day into perspective. Just be sure and have your tissues handy. These stories are heartbreaking- but you will see just how amazing these Gold Star families are.
