My Journey

Thank You – Pausing to Remember

Today is Memorial Day.  I am taking today to say thank you to all the men and women who have served and are serving for our country,and to the injured and to those we have lost, I want to say thank you.  Thank you for giving your lives for us, and for making the greatest sacrifice for our country.

Also, I wanted to direct you to Always Brothers.

They just ran 100 miles to raise money for the children of members who were lost.  I followed them during their run via facebook updates and was touched by just how dedicated these men and women are.  Thank you so much, recognizing the families loss and helping them in the ways you are is amazing.

So go on out to your bbq’s but remember to think of the reason why we have this holiday.
