This Memorial Day, please don't let the negativity coming out of Washington get you down or stray you from the real meaning of the holiday.

I woke up this morning thinking, America is in no worse shape now than ever before.  In the history of this country, when was there ever a time when there wasn't turmoil?  Never!

As long as human beings have opinions, there will always be controversy, chaos and war.  Speaking of war, please remember to honor those who have fallen fighting for our country and our freedom, this Memorial Day.  God bless those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and God comfort the families they left behind.

America, turn off the 6 o' clock news an live your life.  Be happy and spread the gift of love this Memorial Day.  America is still the greatest country in the world!
