Memorial Day 2018
For many of us, Memorial weekend signifies the kick-off of summer! A three-day weekend where pools open, campers get hitched, and all things “made in the U.S.A.” will be on sale.
Whether you celebrate Memorial Day at the lake, the ball field, the BBQ pit, or just a quiet day at home may we not forget the men and women who have given their lives for this great nation. It is because of their bravery and ultimate sacrifice that we are blessed to live in the land of the free.
I recently learned of a group called the American Widow Project. This group was formed by a young widow, for widows in the military.
The American Widow Project recognizes the sacrifices made by the families of our fallen and believes that no military widow should feel alone in her grief. Every military widow deserves the opportunity and tangible tools available to help rebuild her life. Because of that, the American Widow Project provides the vital peer-to-peer, emotional, and educational support necessary to maximize success, healing and hope for a brighter future.
Maybe you know of a woman who could benefit from this website or perhaps you would like an opportunity to donate, volunteer, or fundraise. Our military families need our support.

“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
I pray for you to have a safe and memorable weekend. God bless you and God bless the U.S.A!
