  • Happy Memorial Day

    Today marks my 40 years coming to America. What better way to celebrate it?
    I am thankful to be here and live free and not worry about fear of being persecuted, jailed or murdered based on my race, religion or political preference. It was the brave men and women who paid the ultimate price that made it possible.

    Let's all take a moment to salute and give thanks to the men and women of the armed forces past and present.

        Happy Memorial Day everyone. Rafed I'm so happy for you and your family to have you here. When I see the news cast of all the persecution happening, I think of how you could have been part of that. I thank your parents also for taking that big step to getting you here.
        Blessings,

                Yes, very well said Rafed. We ALL owe a tremendous debt and a very humble gratitude to all of our countrymen and women, who made the ultimate sacrifice, so that we can be free and do all of the things we are so used to doing. Let's all say a very special prayer for these HEROES. May they rest in peace and may perpetual light shine upon them.

                    What better way to spend part of it than in the garden.

                    It's a wonderful life!

                              I think it has a special meaning when you really understand what the price of freedom is. When you have lived it, breathed it, tasted it you can really understand what a difference those heroes really made.

                              Never forget those that made it possible!
