Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day. I am taking time off from complaining about the state of the economy, the unemployment rate, the heartbreak in our gulf coast, and everything else that is annoying the crap out of me. Instead I am going to pause, reflect, and honor those who served our country when she called. Many paid the ultimate price by giving their lives and it is easy to forget this as we dwell in the day to day frustrations of finding work and other consequences of the “new economy”. I am observing Memorial Day along side many soldiers who serve today and face the tragedy of war.

Being back in a military town is a good reminder of what real dedication, honor, and selfless sacrifice are.
