Giving Thanks on Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day in the United States. It is a day set aside to remember those who paid the ultimate price in securing the freedoms we all too often take for granted in America. While I’ve not had the privilege of serving in the military, nor have I personally known anyone who has given their life, I nevertheless want to say:

Thanks

Thank-you to all the former, and active duty personnel, who have given, and are giving, the best years of their lives to secure the freedoms I enjoy.

Thank-you for giving up so much time with your children and families so I can safely enjoy time with mine. It is not a privilege I take lightly.

Thank-you to:

My uncle, Kelly Graham, who served in the Navy.

My cousin, Daryn Callahan, who served in the Army.

I know we–I–don’t say it enough:

Thank-you!
