This Memorial Day

This Memorial Day and every one in the future will mean more to me than ever before. Now I’ve visited the monuments and memorials erected in honor of the men and women who have died defending the interests and freedoms of our country and our allies.

I’ve been very clear in my constant support of our military, and only now has that support intesified after my trip to Washington DC last week. You may not know a veteran or anyone who’s died serving in our military, but none of the men and women who died knew you. And they were willing to give their life, in part, to protect you and your way of life.

Every fallen soldier deserves the gratitude of every American.

I actually won’t say Happy Memorial Day. Because I’m not happy that so many of our young men and women have had to die to protect our country. But I will say today is Memorial Day, and we should all take time to remember what today is really about. It isn’t about being off from work, it isn’t about BBQ on the porch, or about taking a short trip for the long weekend. Today is about the fallen heroes of our military.

Also, I’ll have my DC video up tomorrow.

Our Veterans (poem)

Veterans-Day-US
Our Veterans
Men & women
Like you and me
Who sacrifice everything
For our country

They go to war
Right away
To fight the fight
And get home safe

Some come home quiet
And hurt too
But don’t forget
They were fighting for you

They’re true heroes
I’m sure you agree
They’re also the reason
We’re really free

We all know a veteran
Every one of us
Be sure to thank them
For their service

I know Veterans Day isn’t until Tuesday, buy everyday should be Veterans Day. So I’m sharing this today.
