Time to Remember

Today, as many of you know, is Memorial Day. This is the day in which we remember and pay homage to those who have died trying to protect this nation. Many of you know this as just a three day weekend...but it is much more than that. This is not just another extra day off from school or work, rather it is a much more important day.

Whether you approve or disapprove of our involvement in certain wars, to ignore this special day is ignorant in the fullest sense of the word. These men and women died to protect the ground you stand on each day. Their blood was shed so that you and your family would be safe. They gave the ultimate sacrifice for this nation and they deserve our utmost respect.

So I ask you guys...not just today...but all week...make that extra effort in honoring one of our fallen soldiers...or even a live one. Say what you want about the toughness it takes to be a football player, or grinding through medical school, or training to be an astronaut...take all those hardships, add them together and that is what a soldier and their families go through every single day. So I have a challenge for all of you guys. Take the initiative to find one family in your area that has a loved one who was in the military, still is in the military, or who has died and send them your regards. Something as simple as a letter or even a knock at the door is enough to brighten someone's day.

Thank you.
