I never know how to feel about this day. Some people hold BBQs, some mourn their losses.. others express gratitude. I tried to put that into words in a short status on my fb..
"Celebrating the bravery, the sacrifice, the service, and protection that members of the Armed Forces have continually provided us.. and sending blessings to their families this Memorial day."
These fallen soldiers will never be forgotten, and always be honored for what they have done for us. I hope that their families do not hold heavy hearts, but can find some hope and support from those around them.
So maybe we should celebrate their dedication with a BBQ and respect their passing with a moment of silence.
A very noble Memorial Day to all. I hope I don't offend anyone as I can never find the right words..
