Memorial Day: A Day to Remember Those Who Gave All

Memorial Day is just around the corner, and I'd like to share my own little labor of love with you. As many of  you know, my son has been in the Marine Corps for nearly two years now. As all military parents are, we are extremely proud of our son for choosing to serve his country.  This past November, he married his high school sweetheart, so it's been a year of changes. Here he is bringing his honey roses for no good reason other than ... just because.

When someone  you know and love so completely joins the military, you become more aware of all things military.  I created my Memorial Day resource to honor the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice by educating children about the meaning of Memorial Day. 

This Memorial Day, take a moment from your busy day to say a prayer for the brave men and women who gave their lives for our freedom. I, personally, live with a constant lump in my throat knowing that my son is only a deployment away from danger.  I pray for his and his comrades' safety multiple times a day.

To help your children understand what Memorial Day is, please download this little reader.

I hope you find it useful to use in conjunction with whatever you normally do around Memorial Day to help your students understand the meaning of the holiday.

As a special thank you, be sure to enter my Rafflecopter  a $10.00 Starbucks gift card. It will be sent as e-giftcard!  I can taste that chai tea latte now.  Yum.
