A Place Called Home

Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands. 1 Thessalonians 4:11

Memorial Day

Tomorrow is Memorial Day. I guess because of my many years overseas, I have become more patriotic with each passing year . I value the freedoms we have in our society that so many around the world will never experience. So for all the men and women who have sacrificed for this freedom, I say thank you. Especially, I wish I could thank my Dad, Kenneth Klein, who fought on the US Intrepid in World War II, receiving the purple heart. What wonderful memories I have of walking through the American cemetery outside of Florence, Italy with him, on November 25, 1994. It had been 50 years to the day that he had been wounded. I saw him through different eyes that day. I miss you, Dad. And tomorrow our nation will honor you, just as your family does.
