Memorial Day and music for your Monday

Today is the day where we here in the U.S.A. honor those who have fallen in service to our country. I am so thankful to each and every service man and woman who risks their lives so that we can be free. And having both grandfathers, my father, an uncle, an aunt, my stepfather, and numerous relatives of my sons' on their father's side of the family (including him) who have served, we are very lucky that we never lost anyone while they were defending the nation.

So while I'm not into politically charged patriotic music, this video is a great live performance of a rock song with a patriotic message:

Don't Tread on Me - Metallica

Never forget those who have died serving this country, keep their loved ones in your heart and prayers/thoughts, as we honor their sacrifices.

Music Monday:

X-Mas Dolly
Run DMT
Be There 2Day
My So-Called Chaos

  2. That is a perfect choice, Kim! Like you, I've been lucky none of my military family members were lost while defending our country - my heart goes out to those who have.

    If That Ain’t Country, then We Rise Like Smoke for The Country That I Know and I’ll Sing For You, my American Soldier

    1. I agree. Even if we don't agree with the wars that were fought, the ones serving the country deserve our respect and remembrance.
