In honor of Memorial Day, I want to share a quick little story…

One of my very special friends recently took a field trip to Washington D. C. with her middle school aged daughter’s class

They toured and toured and saw and did, and then she told me the most incredible thing…

When they went to Arlington National Cemetery, her daughter cried…

She saw all the row upon row of graves and she cried…

She got it, she understood

This innocent girl of such a young age, she cried trying to comprehend all those brave souls that died for her freedom…

My friend’s heart was bursting with pride…
