Another Memorial Day is upon us.
This evening as I sat and prepared a blog post I was also watching the National Memorial Day Concert. As I watched the concert I listened to the music and the moving stories of our brave service men and women, my eyes filled with tears. I am so thankful to the brave men and women who have given their lives so we may experience the freedom to which we have become accustomed.
I am often embarrassed by my behavior, my forgetfulness of the gift given to me through the unselfish gift of our men and women in uniform. It is a shame we celebrate the gift of our freedom and honor these brave men and women only one time each year.
It is important, despite our political views to support our troops for if it were not for these brave men and women we would not have the great gift of freedom which so many of us take for granted.
To these brave men and women, I say “Thank you!”
