I once had a minister tell me that a prayer can be as simple as pausing and saying "Hi God". After 18 years, maybe it isn't a whole morning, but let's not forget that fateful morning 18 years ago either. Please remember to say a quick prayer (or moment of remembrance if more suitable to your beliefs), no matter how brief, for heroes, victims, impacted by the horrible morning of 9-11 those18 years ago. (I will also be thinking of Americans and people everywhere that have been impacted by the shockwaves from that morning that have so strongly echoed over the last 18 years as well.) #NeverForget
A humble appreciation to all our servicemen & women - past & present - in the Armed Forces (and their loved ones who share the burden in supporting them). This day is a great reminder to express what we feel everyday - supreme gratitude for the sacrifices, service and commitment of those that carry the burden & honor of defending our country and principles. So, though it never quite seems enough - Thank You! #NeverForget #Veterans #Thankful
Sometimes it's easy to forget that Memorial Day weekend isn't just about picnics and the unofficial start to summer. It's about loss and honoring those losses.
My heart goes out this coming long weekend (and always) to families and friends who have lost loved ones while they served. I am thinking of you while also remembering my Uncle who I lost several years ago.
...and to all those who serve, thank you.
Who will YOU remember this Memorial Day?
