If you are an US Citizen, always remember, "Many" paid a dear price for us (all) to be here.
Remember and Honor our Veterans, Ancestors, and all those brave people who sacrificed lives and fortunes so we could live here and enjoy the freedoms we now have. Respect our Flag, battlegrounds, cemeteries and elderly.
Always work to keep our history alive.
"But Freedom's young favorites sleep as sound,
On foreign soil as native ground."
DEFINITION OF A VETERAN
A Veteran - whether active duty, retired, National Guard or Reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check
made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life."
That is Honor, and there are way too many people who no longer understand it.
"Carpe Diem. Seize the day. Make your lives extraordinary."
If you go to the amusement park, ride the fastest, scariest ride you can. Laugh and scream! Hang on if you must...but jump in! Some people are numb from grief, and want to feel something...anything...
There are no "Do-Overs" in this life. Seize the moment-Seize the day. There may not be another opportunity.
Life is like a book. Each day is a new page. May your book be a bestseller with adventures to tell, lessons to learn, and tales of good deeds to remember.
Keep in mind all those who have helped you...directly and directly....and keep humility in your heart. Learn to love and serve people.
"Keep in mind, hurting people often hurt other people as a result of their own pain. If somebody is rude and inconsiderate, you can almost be certain that they have some unresolved issues inside. They have some major problems, anger, resentment, grief or some heartache they are trying to cope with or overcome. The last thing they need is for you to make matters worse by responding angrily." - Joel Osteen
When one is judged, they are not asked how others treated them. One will be asked, "How did YOU treat others?"
Pyramid Theory of Doubling Ancestors
(You have many relatives)
Have you considered using the Virtual Cemetery feature? It's an easy way to collect all of your ancestors either in one big Virtual Cemetery or you can have several Virtual Cemeteries for various family lines.
Please be patient with edits. Please don't ask me to do your research. That is part of your journey. (Smile)
