We are several weeks behind in our blog, so this is our update. Several weeks ago was Memorial Day, and we thought it would be nice to go to Arlington National Cemetary to remember those who have fallen while fighting in defense of our great nation. Every Memorial Day the Old Guard places flags in front of all of the tombstones in the cemetary. It is an amazing site.
We also had tickets to the speach given by President Bush given at the ampitheater next to the tomb of the unknown soldier. It was very stirring to listen to the Army Band play for several hours before the speach, then we had the opportunity to listen to the President, and to see him fairly closely. His remarks were very inspiring and made us think of the many great blessings that we enjoy living in this free nation where we are able to worship, act, think, speak, and persue the desires of our hearts. Gratitude is the best word to describe the feelings we felt while listening and contemplating the message and music that was presented.
God Bless America!
