Monday, May 27, is Memorial Day, a time for all of us to remember those who have given their lives to preserve the freedoms that we enjoy. I am thankful for our fallen heroes and their families. I am also grateful for having been blessed with a father who was a World War II Veteran who taught me to revere our fallen heroes who gave their lives fighting for people they did not know and had never met. In Lexington schools we take teaching our students about honor and respect of our military very seriously.
We are also blessed with a wonderful American Legion Organization whose members are active volunteers in our schools and who assist our teachers in maintaining and expanding our legacy of patriotism in Lexington.
