Today is a day to honor and remember those who have sacrificed their lives for our country. I have been very fortunate, given the years I’ve been associated with the military, to not have to deal with the stress of deployments. Sometimes this makes me feel like less of an army wife, because I have been lucky enough to not have to go through what most of them have to deal with on a regular basis. But more than anything, it has taught me the importance of honoring the hard work the members of our military do for our country, both at home and overseas. So I just want to take a moment to thank everyone in our armed services and their families for the sacrifices they make daily to ensure our freedom. I hope that everyone takes some time today to remember those who have lost their lives for our nation. Whether you are liberal or conservative, pro-war or bleeding heart pacifist, one thing we should all agree on is the bravery of strength of those in the military, and the importance of recognizing and honoring the work they do.
Happy Memorial Day!
