Music Monday

Standard

Good Morning everyone, and happy Memorial Day. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do for Music Monday- I didn’t want to ignore Memorial Day- but I also don’t have much to say, and so many have posted such eloquent and heartfelt blogs that my little Thank you to those who serve seems inadequate.

So I asked my husband, who is ex- Army Ranger, what I should do. My husband who spent most of his time in the military causing as much trouble as possible suggested ‘Blood On Risers’.

I rolled my eyes, as I do frequently then he smiled and suggested the Dixie Chicks ‘Soldier’.  Which makes me cry- and he knows it, but it is a great song.

Finally hubby said ‘Bellou Woods’ by Garth Brooks. Because what we fought for, and what our soldiers now are fighting for is peace. And it is possible, if only for a few minutes.

Thank you to all the soldiers sacrificing to protect those they love and the strangers they have never met.

PS- I will work on trying to put the videos into my blog.  I don’t know why it won’t work- I’ve tried three different computers.
