Memorial Day

 

Today, we wanted to take the time to recognize those soldiers who have fought for our freedom and given their lives doing so. This day is, and should be, about them…and their loved ones. However, each and every soldier should be thought of daily, for without them, our lives would be so very different. So many have taken their last breath for us.

Naturally, more and more pictures surface my Facebook timeline and news articles over the course of this week. They really tug at my heartstrings. I do think of our soldiers often, but these pictures remind us that they aren’t only soldiers; they are children, moms, dads, sisters, brothers, uncles, aunts and the list goes on. They are a soldier to us, but so much more to so many more. We also need to keep that in mind each day. People we come in contact with may very well have one of these soldiers in their lives or may have lost one.
