#MemorialDay2017

They gave us our freedoms...

The ones we waste, take so readily for granted...

On this Memorial Day...

Use that freedom with purpose...

Donate to a charity that supports our veterans...

Contact the VA, and see how you can volunteer...

Walk up to a veteran, soldier...

And, thank him or her for their service...

Assist at a soup kitchen...

Donate clothes to a homeless shelter...

Call a friend suffering from PTSD, depression, anxiety...

For no reason at all...

And, see how they are doing...

Tell them how much you care and that they are not alone...

Reach out to an enemy in forgiveness...

Seek forgiveness from someone you have made an enemy...

Walk away from a ridiculous political debate and save a friendship...

Hug your kids and tell them how proud you are of them...

Spend a few extra minutes of attention on your spouse...

Do something that will earn your legacy...

Demonstrate that the sacrifice made for your liberty...

Was not in vain...

Memorial is not a state of mind...

Or a Facebook post or Tweet...

Memorial is an act...

Renewing itself, every hour, day...

With every act...

Memorial isn't simple remembrance...

It is living a life that is worthy to be remembered...

Thank you to the US Soldier...

Your blood, sweat, and tears...

And, the tears shed by your loved ones...

Will NEVER be forgotten!
