Happy Memorial Day
I love that picture. There’s pure, youthful enthusiasm and joy in it. And I use it as the banner for today, Memorial Day, because men and women the world over had dedicated their lives in service to this country to ensure that children- like the one pictured above- have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It is my custom to write a long tribute to our servicemen and women, but as Geoffrey Chaucer said in A Knight’s Tale:
Wherever you find yourself today- whether it’s at a barbeque or soaking up rays poolside or attending a community parade, take a moment and remember the countless people who have sacrificed all to give you the freedom to enjoy this day and all the rest, too.
To those who’ve served, I thank you.
