Memorial weekend 2016! A sad time for a once great nation.


How much are YOU getting?

Memorial Day occurs at the end of May in any given calendar year. In general it comprises four days, those being Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. And while it is a somber holiday.  A day (Monday) is set aside for us to remember and honor those who have died while serving our country while many folks also use it as the unofficial start of Summer. For my part, I spend time both thinking about past wars and getting my little Weber grill ready for the grilling season ahead!

This year, there is a lot on all our plates to think about. America, you see, is in trouble.

Here at home, the country is being ripped apart by diverse political factions that almost appear to hate each other. Congress has grown impotent and the Supreme court a bit leaning to the left.

Internationally, my country is more often than not now the butt of jokes by those who would see us and our Republic buried in the ground for all time. Of the hundreds of thousands who have died to protect our freedoms, there are those who desecrate the flag and who denounce my God. We have truly become a nation divided against itself….
