The Story We Need to know; The Heroes We Need to Remember.

It is Memorial Day Weekend in the United States of America.
On Memorial Day we honor the men and women that have given their lives to gain and protect the freedoms we hold dear in our country. Most of us will find some way to celebrate the weekend, but few will spend much time actually remembering our heroes.

I want to share a story with you. It is a story that I hope you will think of often. Perhaps, it is a post that you will share so that other will know the story, as well. It is a story of the heroes that we honor on this holiday; the story of men that gave their lives so that we might live as a people, freed from the rule of England.

This is the story behind the words of our National Anthem.
The next time you stand at a sporting event with your hand over your heart;
the next time you proudly belt out the words;
the next time you hear the Anthem;

And my favorite rendition of our National Anthem...
