As we celebrate Memorial Day, we want to remember those who fought and lost their lives to keep our country safe. Some of us are thankful for the three day weekend and some of us will have to keep working. Maybe you will be able to sneak away and read a few chapters of a good book. Here are just a few that you might find interesting.
AMAZING WOMEN OF THE CIVIL WAR
Band of Sisters: American Women at War in Iraq
And for the recent graduate I recommend

Whatever you do this weekend, take some time to enjoy your family and relax. See the beauty in nature and enjoy. Life is too short to be stuck inside all day. Let your skin feel the rain or get kissed by the sun. If it is cloudy and windy, take a walk or have a picnic. Drink in the moments. Throw a blanket in the back yard and read until dusk. Have a great weekend.
