The story of America's quest for freedom is inscribed on her history in the blood of her patriots. -Randy Vader
Happy Friday dolls! Hope everyone is excited for the unofficial start of summer this lovely 3-day weekend! Any fun plans?
Sara and I wanted to pay a special tribute to the men and women who have given their lives for this country, who we honor on Monday. I come from a military family, and luckily, I have never had to endure the pain of losing a loved one in war. We cannot express our gratitude for their sacrifice.
Two years ago, while Sara and I were in our evening, three hour public relations course, I was flipping through an issue of Newsweek I grabbed from the family I worked for. The entire issue was dedicated to the fallen, and included last letters that every solider writes, just in case. Well, as Sara can tell you, I was a blubbering fool in the back of the room, crying just reading these, yet at the same time, gave me such hope that we have such strong men and women doing what they do. Here is where the issue is online
So, hopefully in between the bbqs, beer, and baseball games that we all love about Memorial Day weekend, we can take a moment to pause, and honor those who this holiday is for.
We'll be back on tuesday!
