As we all take this 3 day weekend, let's remember what Monday is all about. It's Memorial Day. There are many people who each day put their lives on the line for us all. They sacrifice time with their families. They literally put their lives on the line for our country. Some come home and heal mentally/physically over time. Some come home with deep scars that will never heal. Some don't come home at all.
This weekend, resolve to volunteer at a Veteran's Hospital, give to a group that helps vets, or just say thanks to a vet... My kids went to the Veteran's Hospital with our homeschool group in February. My son said, the vets just kept thanking them for coming and bringing cards. He said, "Mom, they don't owe us any thanks. I wish we could have done more for them." He's right and we can. Below is a link to the Wounded Warriors Project. Maybe we can start there:
