Remembering the Fallen

Memorial Day is a time for remembrance, a day to reflect on and thank those who have given their lives in service to their country.

While I have thankfully not lost a loved one in war (although I have several family members who are veterans, of wars current and past) I can sympathize with those who have.  To lose a loved one at any time is painful, but a life cut short in battle is an agonizing loss.

I have written about war and taken the lives of my own characters, but I have never personally experienced these things.  For my freedom and my safety, I have our fallen soldiers, as well as our veterans and active military, to thank.

You are remembered.  Your sacrifice was not in vain.  Thank you.
