The news is filled with reports on military initiatives, bombings, and casualties. Yet all too often we get busy with our daily lives and forget to thank the men and women who so bravely and nobly serve.
Even on days like today, we get so caught up in our family picnics, or the opening of the neighborhood pool, that we forget the true meaning of what Memorial Day is all about.
So today, let’s all pledge to thank and applaud our soldiers and veterans that serve—and have served—in the US military. No matter what your politics are, we all owe each and every one of them a tremendous debt of gratitude. They have left their loved ones, taken up arms, and put their lives on the line to protect this great country.
This Memorial Day, and every day when you see a soldier in uniform or a veteran of the armed services, take the time to stop and say, “Thank you.” It’s the least we can do for these people who have given so much.
Now it’s your turn: How do you celebrate Memorial Day?
