Ahhhhh…Memorial Day Weekend – the start of summer, the end of the school year, graduations, pools opening, cookouts, golf, Indy 500, a long weekend, picnics, and more come to mind.
Recently, I was in Starbucks and a man in an army uniform ordered and then tried to pay for his coffee. The cashier smiled and said "it is on us". And I thought, what a nice way to say thank you to those serving in the military. I also thought I can (and should) do the same.
Like many others, I plan on having some fun over the long weekend joining friends for a cookout and maybe even chasing a few golf balls around. But, I will also take the opportunity to do what I thought about in Starbucks — take some time to honor those that serve our country….and those that have given their lives for it (and me). Maybe you’ll join me in this?
Happy Memorial Day!!
