“Happy Memorial Day”

There is nothing happy about the holiday.

It is about honoring our military who were unable to hug their family when they returned from war.

Who gave the ultimate sacrifice in duty to their country.

Who have spouses, children, family, and friends left with an irreparable hole in their hearts.

I ask for one favor if you are BBQing and celebrating the start of warmer weather with family and friends this weekend.

Take a moment to look around you and be thankful.

Hug your loved ones close and think of those who cannot longer do so.

Make memories. Every moment counts.

You never know when that is all you will have left of someone.
