Memorial Day! A time to reflect and give thanks to all those who have served and are serving. The American Heritage Dictionary defines a hero as follows- "any man noted for feats of courage or nobility of purpose; especially one who has risked or sacrificed his life."
Some of you may be attending special ceremonies today while others are simply enjoying some time spent with family and friends. Either way, I hope you take a moment to pause and say a silent Thank You to these special men and women. What would our country be without these brave folks defending our rights and freedoms? If you know someone in the military, give them an extra big hug for all Americans when you get the chance. I, personally, don't know anyone serving at the moment, so I'd appreciate you giving someone a well deserved squeeze for me!
