Today is Memorial Day. It is a day that means more than a day off from work or BBQ's to me. It is a day of reflection and a day of gratitude. It is a day to pray for our country and a day to thank or hug a vet. I spent an hour this morning talking to a vet online. He is missing one eye and one leg. He is NOT missing his spirit. He is a wonderful person and I love him dearly. You know who you are! Thanks for the chat! I LOVE YOU!!!
Over the past century, more than 35 million men and women answered the call to arms in World War 1, World War 11, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, Iraq, and countless unnamed military engagements. More than half a milliion of them never came home. Some died in battle, others in captivity; all died too soon.
A half a million is a staggering number to me! Wow! If you would like to "celebrate" or "honor" this day I suggest the following: thank a vet, hug a vet, visit a vet, visit a memorial or grave, learn more about this day, create a memorial for a loved one or friend or leave a prayer for a soldier, learn about the vets in your family.
Thank you each and every vet out there! We appreciate you!
Have a wonderful Memorial Day, dear friends! xox
