On this Memorial Day, remember to take time to thank our military for their unfailing sacrifice for our freedom and say a silent prayer for those who have given their all.
While you celebrate the holiday with picnics, bar-be-ques, family and friends, enjoy the following version of "Nineteen", performed by Taylor Hicks at the Roxy on Sunset which was written by Tom Hambridge, Gary Nicholson, Gary and Jeffrey Steele after the September 11 attack on the World Trade Towers.
The story of a young man, only 19, with the opportunity to play football for Tennessee, who chose instead to enlist in our armed forces to fright for our freedom. Whether he saves another soldier and loses his own life or survives to return home to a hero's welcome is open to interpretation. No matter how you think it ends, it's a wonderful story and tribute to the men and women of our Armed Forces.
To them, I say "Thank You". May you be safe this day and every day that you selflessly serve our great nation.
