A Virtual Memorial Day Celebration!
Memorial Day is one of those holidays that pretty much everyone loves. A three day weekend, the beginning of summer activities, and a day to celebrate and honor those who have fought and died for our freedom.
I always remember a visit with my dad on this day, a World War II veteran, buried in Fort Snelling National Cemetery. If you've ever spent time in this cemetery, especially when it is all decked out in flags for the holiday, it offers a spiritual connection that you will never forget. The sense of magnitude is humbling.
So, today, with the holiday on its way, and in honor of our nation's heroes, enjoy this virtual Memorial Day celebration!
