Happy Memorial Day
As many of us celebrate this holiday weekend by grilling out, going to a BBQ, sunning at the beach or doing other fun things, millions of people will be visiting cemeteries all across the nation laying flowers at the … graves of their loved ones and dreaming of what could have been.
Like the parent who lost a child on the battlefield, or the spouse whose partner is suddenly gone, or the children who will never know their mom or dad – it’s heartbreaking. And, it blows me away to think of all those selfless souls that sacrificed their happiness and safety for our security.
It also makes me very sad because they served this country and then did not live to enjoy the same privileges that we are enjoying today. It’s really because of their sacrifices that I can sit here and freely write about them this morning.
To me, they are the “true heroes” in this world and should ALWAYS be remembered and honored that way.
Happy Memorial Day.
