Remembering The Fallen

There is more to the holiday than sales at major retail outlets. There is more to it than just cookouts, times with friends and family, and a day to unwind at the beach.

The words, memorial, memory, remember, and remembrance all have something in common. All of these words involve a dimension of looking back, taking stock, remembering the sacrifices made, the weight and value of lives laid down, given in service of country.

Today among all the other things I do in my day, I pause for a moment and remember, honor and say thank you to the many men and women of our nation’s military who lost their lives in service of our country.
