Each year at this time, we are granted a three-day weekend and what amounts to a kick-off to the summer months ahead.
But let me encourage you to not miss perspective. This Memorial Day weekend take some time to reflect on the ultimate sacrifices made by so many who are interred at Arlington National Cemetery and other cemeteries around the United States.
But also to think about those who have paid very high prices, short of dying.
For some dozen years now, I’ve used my own program on the radio, on Memorial Day, to highlight the lives of people who’ve paid a heavy price in their service to the nation.
I turned to the group, Semper Fi Fund and I mentioned the Fisher House Foundation, both are not-for-profits that are helping the wounded warriors around the United States and the families that love and support them in ways that are so both efficient and winsome.
Look them up. Support them. Support—especially—the families in your world who’ve paid a heavy price for their service to the nation.
We are debtors to those who serve, those who die, those who fight, and those who are wounded.
Today, a grateful nation says, “Thank you.”
