Remember when we were in school in the 40's and 50's and we started every school day with the Pledge of allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America? It gave every one of us a sense of patriotism and pride and thankfulness that we lived in a free country that was founded on religious freedom. Especially for those of us who remember Air Raid Drills when we would all march to the basement of the school and crouch down near an inside wall so we would be protected if we were bombed. And people spent millions of dollars on home shelters to hide in, in the same event should it happen. 

The flag raising on the school grounds was a wonderful ceremony with 2 boys chosen to raise the flag in the mornings and lower the flag,  folding it and putting it away until the next day.  It was impressive and we all had great respect for the flag.

We never took our freedom for granted and we knew why our fathers, brothers, uncles and women in the family, went into the service so that we could remain free. Over Memorial Day weekend, share your memories here and your sense of pride for your free country and shout out for those STILL defending us. Remember......Thanks.♥

 I love this rendition of the Pledge by Lee Greenwood and it touches me deeply whenever I play the Patriotic CD that I have. :)  (In my sidebar)

And Don't forget to share photos of your loved ones who served or are serving in the military.  God Bless!
My heart to yours.....
