Here in the US, we’re enjoying picnics, pool parties and patriotic gatherings. The American flag is waving at most places and people are partaking of hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad and similar fixins’.
But, I fear the meaning of this day is lost on so many.
Thank you. To all who gave their lives for others. Around the world. Not just American service men and women. To each of you we say “we appreciate you and your strength”.
And grateful thanks to members of the K-9 corps. Those dogs, and their handlers, who selflessly gave their lives for all of us.
Wish we didn’t have to do this at all. War is a horrible thing.
