It’s Memorial Day (May 31, 2021) today.
I’m willing to bet that there’s a pretty good chance that you have had a family member, loved one, or friend die in one of our branches of service. If not, then you probably have a friend in that boat. If your family name goes back a few generations here in the states then it’s probably another good bet you’ve had a family member die somewhere along the way in one of the great wars.
These people are the reason we are able to essentially do whatever the fuck we want. Way too often we take that for granted. So while you’re out enjoying the day off, please keep in mind the folks that made it possible, and please be mindful of those that have been affected in some way it.
And while we’re at it, let’s take a few moments today and really think about all the liberties and freedoms that we have on a daily basis.
We at least owe that to those that have paid the price for our freedoms.
