Remember Them

Ground Zero

This is the Memorial Day weekend. A time where we stopped to remember and honor those who have done what they could to make our life better.

Yes, these folks are the military and many others. The statesman who first put their lives on the line to form our great nation and that lineage carrying on to today. Brave congressmen and senators some of Whom have faced overwhelming pain, torture, and partial dismemberment from the enemy both in captivity and on the battlefield. Those who were shot while practicing for a charity baseball event, and those who stand to do what’s right every day, we honor them all.

We honor the firemen who charged into a high-rise building to save others, knowing they were the ones who would not make it back out. The policeman who was killed during a routine traffic stop, trying to keep the roads safe. The next-door neighbor who stood up to be counted when someone called out pleading for help. These are the people who gave the ultimate sacrifice. They did so to make a difference in the lives of others and to protect the way of life they loved.

It seems that one day or one weekend to memorialize those who have passed is not enough. Every day we should spot these people who do the good for others. And, we should thank them, for every good action a person takes makes everyone that much better.

Have a great Memorial Day
