Happy Memorial Day!
Today is both a celebration and a somber reminder for us. Thanks seems so small when I think of the sacrifice of the members of our armed services and their families. But I am thinking about them and how much our military does for us. If you are a veteran, an active member of the military or a family member, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you and admire your courage, spirit and devotion to our country.
This is a shot I snapped during our recent visit to Hawaii and the USS Arizona Memorial. It is a place of solemn grief and pride. There are many such places–Arlington, the Vietnam Memorial in DC (our very own Wailing Wall. If you’re planning to visit it, expect to be moved, shaken and touched in the deepest places of your soul) and in cemeteries throughout the country where families have laid their precious loved ones to rest.
I honor you today. And send my deepest thanks.
