Memorial Day is a sad day for so many. Far too many of us have been touched by the loss of a loved one or friend who “gave their tomorrow for our today.”
As you enjoy a hot dog or a hamburger with family and friends to usher in the unofficial start of summer, pause and remember why the day was originally established.
Celebrate Memorial Day but
PLEASE DO NOT FORGET.
I drove past the Vietnam Memorial and refused to stop. After all these years, I still find the memories too raw. I’m sure I’m not the only wife or mother who can’t sleep through the night.
All I can say is, “Thank you.” Pretty shallow words for such sacrifice.
Maybe the answer is to stand up for those returning now. Please write or call your congressman and ask them to help. Don’t kid yourselves that the fight is over. With you in there, maybe it’s just beginning.
Thank you, and God bless.
