Because of the Brave

Today is Memorial Day.  A day set aside to honor the brave men and women who selflessly served our country.  I’m sure everyone reading this is related to someone, or knows someone who served or is serving our country in the military.

Some came home and rejoined their families and loved ones and moved on.  Some came home with catastrophic injuries.   Our wounded warriors, their lives will never be the same. Some didn’t come home.

Whatever your plans are for today, picnic, cookout, or just a quiet day with family and friends, please take a few moments out of the day to pay respects to these brave men and women.

Let us never forget that America truly is The Land of the Free, Because of the Brave.

When Elsie decided to try her hand at writing a novel, Fire Light Fire Bright was born followed by Dreams Never Lie -which quickly became her publisher’s first Best-Selling Series. The Color of Thunder was published right between Dreams are Forever and Shattered Dreams. Elsie was born in Brooksville, Florida. Some of her fondest memories were swimming at Pine Island in the nearby Gulf of Mexico. Weeki Wachee Springs is where she learned to swim. In the early 1980’s, Elsie and her three children, Katie, Lisa G. and Jes moved to Texas. Shortly after moving to North Central Texas, Elsie met her husband Ronnie on a blind date and after a whirlwind courtship, they married in April 1987. After 34 years, they're still going strong.
