I would like to take a moment this Memorial Day weekend to remember all of those men and women who have bravely given their lives to our country. I am in awe of the courage and patriotism that each of these men and women have had in their heart. It does take a special kind of person to leave the comforts of their home and family to face new adventures, and in this day and age, challenges known as war.
I am also thinking of the brave and encouraging family members who had to let their child, brother, sister, etc actually go and represent our country. The family plays an important role in all of this. Thank you to the parents who raised great children that are independent and selfless to join the military.
Thank you does not seem like words enough to express the gratitude that Americans feel toward these brave people from all neighborhoods across our great country. The United States is lucky to have such loyal and patriotic citizens.
Heartfelt thanks and praise again to all of our service men and women who have gone before us and are fighting for us even today. You are what courage looks like.
