Memorial Day is upon us. It is a day to pay tribute to those who have died in active military service. It is a day to say ‘thank you’ to the brave men and women who have sacrificed their lives in order to allow us Americans to be free. A right that we as Americans too often take for granted. A right that but for our heroes’ sacrifice, would only be a dream. A right for which we must stand.
Take time this weekend to not only honor our fallen friends, but to honor our own lives as well. Life is fragile. Each day we awake is a day that we should celebrate. Another chance to spend time with family and with friends. Another chance to taste the sugars of life’s subtle rewards. Another chance to change the world.
Kiss your spouse. Kiss your kids. Let the sun fill you with energy that sets your soul on fire. Go for a run. Workout. Play an instrument. Hit the pool, lake or beach. Be present. Be grateful. Be.
