Memorial Day

Many of us forget the reason we have a day off from work and extra time in the sun this weekend is not without its high price.  If you’re going to drink today, at least make a toast to those who died for our country.  This is what I posted last year and I still feel the sentiment deep in my bones:

“Our nation has paid a high price to preserve freedom, and our service members and military families have paid the highest price of all. No tribute to these sacrifices is more enduring than a grateful nation determined to live out the promise of liberty. So let us all do our part this Memorial Day – whether it’s standing in silence, whispering a prayer, or simply saying ‘thank you’ – to honor those who did their duty. Thank God for our heroes. May a piece of each of them live on in all of us.”

Happy Memorial Day. And thank you to all who serve or have served, especially my Daddy.
