Remembering our Soldiers

As many of you already know today is Memorial Day in the United States where we take the time to remember and honour our fallen soldiers.  I am a very patriotic person (as many of you are for your own countries).  I have been known to cry at the singing of our National Anthem.  I don't agree with war but I do respect those who fight for our freedoms.  I wanted to make a card that reminded me of the reason we do that.  Memorial Day is celebrated with parades, bbq's, picnics, swimming, fireworks. Good ole' family fun!  My dad is a veteran and he is buried in a National Cemetary.  If I lived close to day would have included visiting him in Iowa.  (I live in Missouri).   Here is my card.  Love, Elle
