I know the system is not perfect, that there is much debate about why we are where we are and if it's justified, and that war is a gritty, ugly thing, but regardless of your personal feelings or politics, you cannot feel anything but love and respect for these heroes. On the individual level, these are good people, who care about us, care about our country, and care about justice and doing the right thing.
So, today, as we all enjoy our day off, head to the beach, fire up the grill, or paint a hallway (me!), let's remember the real reason why we have been given this day: the people in our lives who are so frequently forgotten but are always fighting for us.
Happy Memorial Day!
