Memorial Day

Today is the day we remember and honor those who’ve served in the military and those who continue to serve. Those who died in service to their country, and those who gave up more than any of us can possible know, even though they kept their lives.

This is the day we say thank you, paltry though that is. For me, it’s also the day to remember those who’ve fallen in service to others in all capacities. You give me hope.

Thank you.

  1. Add my thanks to yours but make sure it goes to the right place–to those who quietly spend their lives in service to others, whether they lose life in the doing or not, who simply want to contribute to the not-so-common good instead of whingeing about it. There are way too many self-seeking glory hounds who rate their own good above anyone else’s who gobble up praise that rightfully belongs to others, and those idiots don’t need any thanks of mine.
