    • I used to celebrate it because of it being a holiday, but now I celebrate it thinking of all those loved ones lost not only in my family but also for all those lost souls who stood on the enemy lines on mine and this countries behalf.

    • I celebrate mainly because it’s a national holiday, I am grateful that I have lost no family or friends to any war. I praise God for keeping everyone safe and returning them home to me especially my daughter, who served in Iraq. My father, brother, two ex-husbands and son were in the service at one time or another.

    • In the past I would have said just because its a national holiday.  That has changed in recent years.  although neither Mike or myself have anyone serving now, (my dad was in the airforce) we do have some close friends who either have served or have kids serving now.  A few of these kids have been to Iraq several times.  I’ve also started reading more about whats been going on both in our past and present wars and it gives me a new appreciation for what our military and their families sacrifice for us so now I will say that I will remember the price these fine folks have paid and are apying so I can sit here at my computer all comfy cosy and write this.

    • It’s a day of rememberance, reflection, and enjoying life.  Personally, I lost about a dozen friends on 9-11.  (I used to work at the Pentagon.)  I had the opportunity to return to my job there but chose not to.  If I had, I am convinced I wouldn’t have survived based on who all perished and their locations in the Pentagon that morning.  So on “holidays” like this I remember them.  Try to honor them by living my life happily.  And reminding myself that God has a plan for me.  For some reason He didn’t want me there that day.  I put a flag in my yard.  Each flag as a name of a lost friend written on the post.  I say a prayer for each one as I put it out.

    • That is wonderful and loving Bluerose. I am in support of public displays of affection such as this one it means a lot to those who know for whom your heart grieves and it means a lot to me to know someone of your character and love.
