Thanking Those That Came Before Me

Took the time to stop by and visit my Great Grandparents this weekend.  I never met either of them, but in 1911 they gave me a better life.  Tired of living on an estate ran by an overlord who treated them like animals they risked everything to come to a new country.  It wasn't easy to travel with 3 small children, the youngest learned to walk on a ship.  They didn't speak the language and had to find work as soon as they arrived.  Their life was hard, but they gave their children and all the generation after them the gift of opportunity.  On this Memorial Day weekend I thank them.
