Memorial Day

Today is the day, in the USA, that we remember our fallen soldiers, airmen, sailors, and marines.

Today I am remembering by grilling outside and hanging out with my extended family. I am thinking of my Papaw who was wounded during WWII in the Pacific. I am thinking of a friend from high school whose husband was killed in Afghanistan. I am remembering a guy that graduated from college with my brother who was killed by an IED in Afghanistan recently.

I'm thinking of my own brother who is currently in Afghanistan. He hasn't met his son yet. I am praying like crazy for him to come home safe.

So while we are all having fun today, let's remember the ones that have died. They aren't just numbers. Remember the ones that are living in danger every moment. Pray for their safety and strength for their families.

Have fun and be safe today y'all!
