Memorial Day

I cannot express enough the deep significance Memorial Day has to everyone at Yesteryear Acres. It is a holiday to remember those that have served. Today on this Memorial Day as we ready for tomorrow's United States Naval Academy graduation ceremony and the Commissioning of our daughter into the United States Marine Corps, being grateful for our servicemen and service women could not fill our hearts more. We took time out of our day to go visit the World War II Memorial. We walked around the memorial and read each of the plaques dedicated to those who lost their lives in the war.  We looked at the massive list of names engraved on the large granite pillars. We walked in silence and I held back the tears as I thought of all those who gave their lives to protect us. Thank you to those that serve. Thank you for the bottom of my heart.
