Memorial Weekend

I hope ya'll are enjoying your weekend. For many, this weekend is the first sign of summer. Pools are opening, barbecues are happening, and the sun is shining bright. But this weekend, is also time to remember those who have and who are fighting for our freedom.

This past week a local fallen solider was brought home. There was a procession from the Jacksonville Naval Air Station to Gainesville. Citizens lined the road as the procession traveled past. While I didn't participate, I witnessed these events on television. I had this tingling feeling, just thinking about how our community comes together to support someone we don't even know. It was a beautiful sight.

Enjoy your weekend, but take a moment to think about those fighting for our freedom.

xxoo, Jones
