Those brave individuals who find the courage to run into the danger when the rest are running away from it. That is what is celebrated today.

Sometimes the true purpose of the day gets lost amongst the other things.   The BBQ’s and swimming, the ‘official’ start of summer.  Memorial Day her in the USA is more than that.  It is a day to remember with love, honor, reverence and gratitude all of those who gave everything so we could continue in peace, for the most part.  It is a day to be thankful for all of the men, women and even animals who have ever worn the uniform of a soldier, police man, firefighter. Those brave individuals who find the courage to run into the danger when the rest are running away from it.  That is what is celebrated today.  Some may think today should be somber whilst remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. I however disagree, and believe that looking down from heaven above are many happy uniformed angels, who while they would rather be physically with their families are nonetheless happy to see them celebrating in freedom, rather than suffering in shackles. So from the heart of this Army Man’s daughter, come two very inadequate words to sum up what the feeling truly is.  Thank You.  ♥ Robin ♥
