As many will hit the lakes and the parks this weekend for an extended weekend, I wanted to take a quick second and express my deep gratitude on this Memorial Day.
My heart is thankful for my own extended family who sacrificed for the good of America throughout history.
My soul is filled, with the thoughts of so many who enter the service with the intentions to help others.
My mind is quick to be full of gratitude for those who decided to volunteer to keep America safe.
Memorial day carries with it so many thoughts and emotions. The ideals of honesty, protection, safety, security, taking care of the innocent, caring for the downtrodden; these are all components of America that make Memorial Day a great day to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
So for you and your family, if you have, or have had someone serve in the armed forces who gave their life for a cause greater than themselves, Today we honor them…and you.
May God bless you and yours today as we remember.
