Today is Memorial Day. I wanted to take a moment to remember two men in my life that were involved in various wars who are no longer with us. True, they were not killed in the wars they participated in, but they were both carrying the scars that often come with war and would not openly speak about their experiences much.
This is actually common for service men and women who have ever been involved in combat. War is traumatic, and yet we in this civilization view it as a necessity to get certain things we need and maintain our status quo of separation.
Here’s to the men and women who are currently serving our country. They may not get to break bread with their families as most of us will be able to today, and for that we thank them. For all their sacrifices and selflessness, we thank them.
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!
