“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.”
– Arthur Ashe
I shan’t wish you a Happy Memorial Day for as a friend who is in the military reminded me, it isn’t a happy day. It isn’t about picnics, nor getting a day off from work. It is about remembrance for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for all of us to live in this country. It is about those who survive, but still have limitations from their service time. It is about serving others because you believe in our nation. It is about honoring those who have passed.
So today please take a moment to send peace and love to all those who have passed and to those who have given of themselves to serve our country. It saddens me that we have lost so many souls in a collection of unrest in our world. Let’s say a prayer for peace today and remember all those for whom this day is in remembrance.
