Take the time…

May 28, 2012

It is days like this when some people (like I did today), can just forget about the real reason for Memorial Day.  It is a day to take some time and reflect on the brave men and women who have given their lives… paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  Whether you agree with the politics that sent them into harms way or not is not the point.  Whether your political view lean left or right is not the point either.  Today is the day to honor our fallen friends and family that haven’t returned to us.

All that just makes me want to slap myself for the small, insignificant problems that show up from time to time in my life.  I have friends that haven’t returned and know friends who have had family members that didn’t make it back.

My hat is off to you brave folks today.  If you see a soldier, or a former soldier, tell them ‘Thank you’ for serving our country, I know I appreciate it when someone says it to me.
