Memorial Day celebration, quote, quilts
And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
Memorial Day is a very special day for me. From childhood to the present, I love the roar of the race cars at the Indy 500. The pre-race ceremonies always include the celebration of freedom due to the honor and bravery by our service men and women. And the race itself is an Indiana tradition. Whether I attend in person, listen on the radio or watch the race on TV, I always get goosebumps of enjoyment throughout the day.
This year I completed a couple of quilted wall-hangings which I display in our home during the month of May.
I wish you and yours a wonderful Memorial Day celebration and hope you will join me in celebrating
the freedom we enjoy as Americans because of the sacrifices by our service men and women.
