memorial day

I just wanted to quickly say "Happy Memorial Day" to everyone! But in all honesty, is "Happy Memorial Day" really the appropriate thing to say? What got me thinking was a status one of my really close friends posted:

 

I see Brian in my kids every single day there isn't a day that goes by that I don't remember him and miss him, Memorial Day is the particular day out of the year everyone is supposed to remember those fallen soldiers that have died for our country.. Some choose to spend this day barbecuing and shopping I'm just asking that you take a break for a couple seconds and remember those fallen.. It's not too happy for us, but like every other day we as gold star families hold our head up high, try to honor them as best as we can, and live on.

 

The thing is, several years back she lost her husband in Afghanistan. They had just been married, had 2 kids, moved to his duty location and he was sent for his first tour right after boot camp. Unfortunately he never made it home leaving her a widow shortly after they had been married. It's a very sad story and her status I believe was beautifully put. Memorial Day isn't honestly a happy day because we remember those brave men and women who went out and sacrificed their lives so we could have freedom. Like I always say, you don't have to support the war by any means, but please support our troops. Just take a moment from this day and remember those people, such as Brian, who fought for their country and left their families behind. I don't know anyone stronger than those families who lost their loved one, but go on day to day with a brave face and face the world. 

 

Looking at my friend you would never know what she went through or the pain she's feeling. She gets up every day and takes care of her kids and herself, even on the days that she's hurting the most. I don't know many people who do that just in every day life. I honestly don't think I would be that strong. She's the true meaning of "Army strong." So while I'm not asking you to be sad today, just remember what Memorial Day is truly about. If you have a chance, thank a veteran for their service or someone who is currently serving, and please don't forget those families of the fallen who lost their loved ones. Today is particularly rough for them.
