Dear Friends,⠀ ⠀ If you have a political axe to grind, today is the day to set it down. Don’t confuse politics, with considering the profound loss of human life. It’s not about how great the nation is; it is about what those souls lost. It doesn’t matter if they were valiant volunteers, or reluctant and draft coerced. It isn’t about bravery either — in those circumstances, shuddering in fear is just as honorable.⠀ ⠀ It’s about what you have today, which those who served and sacrificed, would never have again — life. So think about it a little today; somewhere in-between the flag-waiving, sports, beer, and barbecues — take a moment, to imagine how many real people, just like you, would never again experience such joyful times. So enjoy it for them. Have a great meal and good-times with those you love. Laugh a little louder, for them. Hug a little longer, and love a little deeper, for them. Live life twice as richly, for someone, who never came home. Think about them a little today, and somewhere in-between all of the distractions, offer-up one serious and sacred moment — to remember.⠀ ⠀ @BryantMcGill⠀ ⠀ #MemorialDay #MemorialDayWeekend #MemorialDay2018 #salute #honor #respect #sacrifice #military #soliders

Dear Friends,

If you have a political axe to grind, today is the day to set it down. Don’t confuse politics, with considering the profound loss of human life. It’s not about how great the nation is; it is about what those souls lost. It doesn’t matter if they were valiant volunteers, or reluctant and draft coerced. It isn’t about bravery either — in those circumstances, shuddering in fear is just as honorable.

It’s about what you have today, which those who served and sacrificed, would never have again — life. So think about it a little today; somewhere in-between the flag-waiving, sports, beer, and barbecues — take a moment, to imagine how many real people, just like you, would never again experience such joyful times. So enjoy it for them. Have a great meal and good-times with those you love. Laugh a little louder, for them. Hug a little longer, and love a little deeper, for them. Live life twice as richly, for someone, who never came home. Think about them a little today, and somewhere in-between all of the distractions, offer-up one serious and sacred moment — to remember.
