I am beginning this holiday weekend with a somber reminder of what Memorial Day commemorates - the courageous men and women who died in military service for our blessed nation. I will blog more about our debt to these heroes later this weekend, but wanted to share some photos and talk about what I saw on Thursday.
The Wall that Heals is on display in Sugar Land this weekend. “The Wall” is a traveling half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. that visits communities throughout the United States. Viewing the 58,261 names of our fallen soldiers will take your breath away. It also makes you proud to be an American as it reminds you of the service and sacrifice of our brave military men and women, and their families who suffer unbearable heartache so we may live free. Let us never forget.
The Wall that Heals will be at the Sugar Land Memorial Park through Memorial Day. I encourage you to pay a visit and offer your respect at The Wall and in your heart this Memorial Day weekend.
