I am that person...

...who loves America and all she stands for.

I am that person who will always remember the lives
sacrificed for us that we might live in a free country.
I am that person who gets very sentimental every
time a flag passes by.

I am that person who still stands and puts my
hand over my heart when I see the red, white
and blue.

I am that person who believes that our flag is
more than just cloth and ink.

I am that person who still believes in America.
I am that person who loves the land of the free
and the home of the brave.

As you celebrate this memorial weekend with friends
and family please take a moment to be *that person*

I too am one of those people Sandi!
My youngest son is currently serving his country in our Navy.
I myself was born and bread "a military brat"
I become very emotional when I think of those serving and those who gave their lives to defend us!
Just one more thing we have in commom!
Have a blessed weekend
