Remembrance...

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Evolution - 447 Boston Street, Suite #5, Topsfield, MA 92593-B

Tomorrow is Memorial Day.

Memorial Day is a somber day. It is a day when we remember those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice. We remember them so they will never be forgotten. It is a day that must be emblazoned into the memory of every man, woman, and child in our nation. If we forget the cost of freedom our nation will not be the nation we remember.

There is never a day that I don't remember my time in the military and how lucky I am to have returned alive and not physically wounded. On the C-130 we transported our troops, to combat destinations, brought those killed in action home,  and flew medical evacuations of those that were injured and needed serious medical attention. I remember their eyes, eyes that had seen and witnessed things no one should see and witness. It is a vacant stare (the 1000-yard stare). A stare disassociated with all around it. 

Please watch this video and absorb it.

There is very little we come across in life that is for free and the most important of those is freedom. This is a day to remember those that paid the ultimate price so that we could enjoy our freedom.

Freedom is never a thing to be taken for granted yet I get concerned that they are and often abused

Hello Doug Dawes 

That video went straight to my heart. Before seeing it today, I spent the last 3 days, especially yesterday and the day before, being the voice for those who served. Death be not proud - just honored and respected.

Oh my gosh, that video. I had seen the movie a while ago, and it brought back the story. Especially important "For the fallen not to be forgotten we must be their voice". Yes.
