A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.
Soldiers in Heaven
Little Jake asked his mother during the Memorial Day Parade: “Mamma, don’t soldiers ever go to heaven?”
“Of course they do!” protested his mother. “What makes you ask?”
“There are so many soldiers with beards but I never saw any pictures of angels with beards.” he replied.
The mother responded “Oh, that’s because most vets who go to Heaven get there by a close shave.”
Let us remember as we fall asleep this Memorial Day those who fight and the many that have died to protect our freedom.
