Happy Monday! (And Happy Memorial Day!)
As I mentioned in a previous post, I was away this past weekend for a soccer tournament But I’m back home now, ready for some sunshine and blogging!
Today in the US, it’s Memorial Day. It’s the day where we honor our men and women who served in the US Armed Forces. This holiday is bittersweet, because as we honor the people who served and protected our country, we also remember the fallen soldiers. The ones who died trying to protect our country, and the ones who still are fighting today. My grandpa was a Korean War veteran, and I miss him every day.
But even though this holiday is one of remembrance it’s also one of celebration. We celebrate the lives of the men and women who served, and continue to serve our country. They are amazing people, and I cannot thank them enough for keeping us safe.
So to all of the men and women who protect and defend, in all parts of the world, thank you.
Do you know anyone who was in (or is currently in) the Armed Forces? Or, if you’re not from the US, do you know anyone who served (or currently serves) in your country’s military? My grandpa was a pilot during the Korean War, and the pictures of him in his uniform are amazing.
Hope you all have an amazing week!
