This memorial day is different than most. Stores are closed, barbecues are cancelled and large celebrations are not allowed. Even though plans may have been cancelled, there is still an opportunity to take a moment to honor and remember those who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom. Maybe plant a flower, go for a walk with your child or sit outside and take in the peace and beauty around you. If it wasn’t for the men and women who selflessly sacrificed their lives for our freedom, we may not have enjoyed these simple, yet beautiful luxuries. Eddie, I’m remembering and honoring you not just today but every single day. Thank you to all the brave men and women who have allowed me to live this beautiful life. A life where nothing is taken for granted and everything is greatly appreciated.
