Happy Memorial Day!


Today is a day to recognize all those who gave for our freedom.  It’s what we are are after working from home.   The whole idea behind having a home based business is simply FREEDOM.  We have that freedom for a reason!  Let’s not waste it.  On this Memorial Day let’s reflect on those that gave and understand how we are going to take advantage of this opportunity they’ve given us.

Our soldiers work diligently and make the ultimate sacrifice for our ability to pursue a life of love, liberty and happiness.  Our hearts are filled with gratitude for the soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice!
Freedom Is Not Free
– Kelly Strong
I watched the flag pass by one day.
It fluttered in the breeze.
A young Marine saluted it,
and then he stood at ease.
I looked at him in uniform
So young, so tall, so proud,
He’d stand out in any crowd.
I thought how many men like him
Had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil?
How many mothers’ tears?
How many pilots’ planes shot down?
How many died at sea?
How many foxholes were soldiers’ graves?
No, freedom isn’t free.
I heard the sound of TAPS one night,
When everything was still
I listened to the bugler play
And felt a sudden chill.
I wondered just how many times
That TAPS had meant “Amen,”
When a flag had draped a coffin
Of a brother or a friend.
I thought of all the children,
Of the mothers and the wives,
Of fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted lives.
I thought about a graveyard
At the bottom of the sea
Of unmarked graves in Arlington.
No, freedom isn’t free.

Happy Memorial Day,
Stacy O’Quinn
