If you are reading this, you did not make the ultimate sacrifice for this country. It’s okay, neither did I. Others made that sacrifice, so we could be here now doing whatever it is that we are compelled to do. You may not even appreciate the sacrifices they made. It doesn’t matter. They still made it. You may not even be an American, but you are still effected by their valorous actions.
Take a moment today and send a prayer of thankfulness to all the members of the U.S. military who gave their lives for our freedom. As you go about your day, be kind to those you encounter. You never know if they lost a parent, a child, a brother, sister, or a spouse in service to this country. This day may be just another holiday for you. But for them, everyday is a Memorial Day in which they remember their loss.
