This is my favorite holiday of the year. It's full of thoughts of all our past and current heros. Our country might be a mess right now, but our true core of being American's is strong. One of the greatest gifts we have as a country is our freedom. Many of take this for granted but most of us know that this freedom we enjoy came at great human sacrifice. It's this weekend that we are given the opportunity to reflect and thank all our soldiers who have fought for our freedom.
So, to the veterans:
Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication to our country. Thank you for making the ultimate sacrifice so that I am able to raise my children, play with my grandkids, go to work, own a home, eat plenty and enjoy knowing I can do anything I want. Without you, none of us have this great gift. Know that not just on Memorial Day weekend, but every weekend, we are grateful and thankful for your service.
To our active soldiers:
Thank you so much to the men and women who are currently serving in our military. You may not have signed up for the situation we are in right now, but you certainly have stepped up to the challenge. Your dedication to keeping our country safe is amazing. I'll be thinking of you this weekend.
