Memorial Day 2018


"We can never replace them. We can never repay them. But we can always remember. And today, that is what we are doing — we remember. Words cannot wipe away the tears or bring back those smiling faces. But if Americans just take the time to look into your eyes and tell you how much we thank you and how dearly we pray for you and how truly we love you, then hopefully you can find solace through your pain. And every time you see the sun rise over this blessed land please know your brave sons and daughters pushed away the night and delivered for us all that great and glorious dawn."

~ President Donald J. Trump, 5/29/17


It's a freebie week for the Mewsic Moves Me blog hop so we decided to share our Memorial Day playlist...








Next week's theme is the hit songs of crossover artists which also falls on a very special anniversary, so we hope you'll join us then as we remember a true legend.

Melissa,

Trace Atkins, "Arlington" is such heart-felt song. His voice really makes the song special for the lyrics. Your mewsic tribute for our fallen, our heroes of yesterday and today is beautiful. Thanks for honoring those who paid the price for our freedom and may God bless the families of the brave. It's great having you on the dance floor this week, my friend. Have a good week.

A tearful selection of songs. I came to your blog after listening to "Red Sector A" by Rush, and listening to that and several of your selections made me think of a vet I knew once, in Wichita Falls, Texas, who helped to liberate a concentration camp. Many gave their lives, but we also must never forget the everyday vets who walk among us, bearing invisible wounds of war we can never imagine. Well done. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
