A Memorial Day Honour ...

On Sunday, we set aside time to honour those American soldiers, sailors, Marines and Air Force personnel who gave their lives in the name of freedom -- and for God, duty and country.
Of course, the real celebration comes on Monday, when most stores and even more people have the day off to remember our deceased vets.

But it's also meant for those who survived the battlefields but, sometime down the road and for other reasons, passed from this world to another. Many of the ceremonies commence in churches, and end up in graveyards where the veterans are buried.

Most recently included amongst these are soldiers who served during the Afghan wars of recent years. These, unlike those of earlier conflicts, were volunteers; they didn't have to go to war. They could've easily remained "civilians", working their jobs, hanging out with their friends, dating, or going to college. Instead, they volunteered to serve our country -- and, sadly but subsequently, gave their lives to help protect it.

So, this weekend, we need to pay our respects to every one of them, whether World War or Vietnam, Korean or Iraqi, Afghan or a War Between States. It won't take long to thank these men and women on this particular day ... but it would take more than a lifetime to repay them for their courage, conviction and conscience ...


Summertime's right around the corner, and that means everybody's going to be "out-and-about", shopping for some of their favorite sun-and-fun deals. Of course, that's going to mean rummaging through our favorite stores, looking for specials and discounts.
But there's one store that people can rely on for the best in merchandise -- and at great prices! For years, I've shopped at K-Mart® and have saved quite a bit of cash when buying everything from clothes to CDs.
You can save even more, though, when you use kmart coupons to sweeten the already-low prices! By clicking the link you just saw, you'll be able to save on some very "sunny" merchandise to help augment your summer fun.
So, as you prepare for your summer, be sure to check out the great deals on quality merchandise! You and your wallet will definitely be smiling over the money you save on your purchase!
