…..but we do truly take it for granted. We’re so spoiled and tend to forget the sacrifices made so we can be free.
I’m old enough to remember World War II (I know, older than dirt), and as a family we were so blessed that everyone in my family who went, came back. But that wasn’t true of many families.
We tend to think of it as just a ‘holiday from work’ where we can picnic, BBQ, go to the lake, etc. Let’s try and remember what it’s really about this year – and honor – those fallen!!!!!
Such a good thing to remember, even though I’m not american I think it’s important to honour our soldiers!
Hope you are having a great weekend 🙂 We aren’t doing much, staying home and staying warm with that cold winter weather that’s here!
Staying home here too. Things are starting to open back up, but I’m not comfortable being out yet, so I’m still home. Stay warm, about to be hot weather and summer time here. But since I’m always cold I’m looking forward to hot.
You’re so right…there’s a reason behind the holiday and it behooves us to remember it.
Thanks Jodie! I know it was a really short post, but I do feel strongly about it.
