Today I appreciate this holiday for it gives us a day of rest to pause and remember those who have passed. It is also a time to honor the brave men and women who have given the greatest sacrifice that we may be free. Is there any greater gift than that? A few days ago I posted the question “if you knew someone had given their life for yours, would you live differently?” I was thinking of “Saving Private Ryan” at that moment. I realized that just because I do not have a specific face to put with that sentiment, makes it no less a gift. I would like to also many of my uncles who served in many branches of our armed forces. Thank you to the those who have gone before me.
