The weekend is over and everyone is back to work. Lots of us got together with family and friends, played games, went to the beach. cooked out and drank ourselves silly in the true American tradition.
Just like every other Memorial Day.
But I hope that you took a moment to give a thought to our boys and girls fighting for freedom in countries and cities too difficult even to pronounce properly. They are boys and girls going in, and will come out men and women with experiences we can only read about and imagine.
So many will not get the opportunity to party on a beautiful sunny day ever again.
So next time you see someone wearing the uniform, be sure and thank them. Because they do it for all of us.
