My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 143 – Remembering on Memorial Day…

There is a difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day. 

Memorial Day and Veterans Day honor the sacrifices of innumerable individuals who sacrificed themselves to preserve the freedoms all Americans enjoy, with Memorial Day remembering those who gave their lives, and Veterans Day honoring all who served in the U.S. Armed Forces.

I hope that you were able to pause today and take a moment to remember those who have sacrificed so much for our country.

Today we visited the Dallas/Ft. Worth National Cemetery where my brother-in-law is buried.  It’s a really beautiful place.

Remembering those that gave their lives is important and even though today was not necessarily a day to thank a Service Member, we do think of them as well with a grateful heart.

Who did you remember today?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa
