Happy Memorial Day

How many people spend memorial day thinking about the U.S. military officers who have died in service? Most, are glad to have a day off to celebrate. It’s good to spend time with family and friends, but the hope is that a few minutes would be spent thinking about those people who sacrificed themselves.

Being in a military town, there is greater awareness but as I drove down a street named Memorial Drive the other day, the thought came to mind about those that are still alive but have sacrificed themselves in different ways to be of service to other people.

How about this Memorial Day, taking a moment to think about them and reflect on how they have positively impacted your life?  Why not thank the ones who are still around.

Happy Memorial Day.  Thank you for being a part of my community.
