Today is Memorial Day in the United States. It’s one of the less flashy holidays, focusing more on remembering those who have fallen in battle defending people from threats foreign and domestic. But it is by no means insignificant. And despite our international audience, I think that it would be appropriate to take a moment to appreciate what this holiday is about. This honor is applicable to everyone around the world who fights for those who cannot, after all.
While the focus of this holiday is primarily on those who served in the military, let us not forget that our police officers who also put themselves in harm’s way to protect you. Soldiers, Officers, and everyone else who is willing to risk their lives to save others, be they still alive or long dead… we thank you. We salute you. We honor you.
Let’s have a moment of silence in honor of those we have lost to unnatural causes, and remember their selfless sacrifice.
