Memorial Day Holiday

I’m taking the day off today to enjoy some time with my family and get some more work done on our yard projects. I hope you are able to get away from work a little and spend some time relaxing or doing something you love to do.

While it is a holiday, don’t forget the reason. Do not forget the service men and women who died while in military service. They died fighting for us and to protect our freedom. If you’ve lost a friend or loved one that served, there are no words that I can share to make you pain go away nor are their words that would even come close to expressing how grateful I am them. What I can say is thank you. I can also promise that I will never forget.

Have a safe and blessed memorial day holiday. Stew will talk to you tomorrow, and I’ll see you on Wednesday!

    Such a great reminder. Our troops have defended our nation, including not only our values but our standard of living. Although I’m struggling with balancing my finances, I’m fortunate to be blessed with so much. Most of the world struggles just to have enough to eat or get basic services or health care.

    I hate this “holiday” Dead people are dead. How about some focus on survivors? It’s too easy to put a flower on a grave; It’s a lot tougher to visit a VA hospital. To me, it feels like the whole country is ducking responsibility for serious sacrifices made in our names.

    If you’re not up to a hospital visit, at least send a package to someone currently serving, donate to an organization supporting service families or write a letter to your representative in Washington, telling them how important it is to provide adequate care to the veterans who survive, but with life-changing disability.

    If you know a family with a surviving veteran, do a quiet random act of kindness. The dead no longer feel pain. their survivors and their wounded comrades need us to care about them.
