Memorial Day and "The Good Guys"

How was your Memorial Weekend? I hope that you all enjoyed it, and stayed safe. I wanted to share a little tidbit straight from the mouth of my 3yr old daughter. It really caused me to think about what Memorial Day is all about.

Sunday, we went with Mark's family, and visited numerous family grave sites throughout Utah. As we were driving around one cemetery to get to the far side, we drove up a hill, looking down at a field of military graves. Lines of white markers with the American flag proudly waving. My kids noticed this and asked what they were for.

"Those are the graves of the men and women who fought in wars for our country. They helped to keep our country safe, and to keep us free." A simple explanation for young kids.

"Oohh..." Said my 3-yr old. "The good guys."

Mark and I had a good chuckle over that, but in all seriousness, they are the "Good guys".

THANK YOU to all those that serve our country. You put your life in danger so that we can live ours as we wish. Thank you.
