Memorial Day Weekend, Spent at a Grave



Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend, what did you do?



Monday my Son and I went to one of Denver's largest grave yards and took 50 American flags with us and stuck them on US Military Graves. We usually do something every year to honor Memorial Day and this year I wanted to teach my son about what the true meaning of memorial day is. I am vey thankful for all the service men and women and for my freedom. There was a dedicated section of the grave for all Military soldiers, it was beautiful. Every grave had a flag and then we added ours. It was a beautiful day and felt like my son now understands it. It was really nice to have that moment of silence out there, I crouched down and got eye level with all those stones, puts things into perspective.


Thank you to everyone who has served our country & God bless you.

  1. What a wonderful way to teach your son the meaning of sacrifice for one's country. I think schools should do visits such as this so kids can relate better to the price of war.
