Food for thought this Memorial Day




   This Memorial Day holiday we are on the road riding our motorcycles, not cooking, in Washington, D.C., with Rolling Thunder, a group of advocates for all America's armed forces nationwide and seeks to bring POW/MIA issues to the political forefront. Estimates vary, but as many as five hundred thousand motorcycles roar down Constitution and Independence Avenue in formation  showing support for those who have served and are serving in our military today. It is impressive to see the thousands of on-lookers crowd along the sidewalks and curbs to salute and wave to the riders who have taken their holiday to come to Washington to speak for those who cannot.
 For those readers who have family members that  are serving or who have served this country, thank you for your service........

I fourth that sentiment! Thanks for writing it, Jann. And, along with Tanna - you on a motorcycle just tickles my heart.
