I Am Back

In case you were wondering where I’ve been during the past five days, here’s the answer:  I dropped everything, left my laptop at home and whisked members of my family off to the Smoky Mountains of Eastern Tennessee for some much-needed end-of-the-school year rest and relaxation.

During the week, we enjoyed a lot of outdoor activity, but the very best — and most grueling — was the hike we took high into the mountains. It lasted two hours and 40 minutes, and left us feeling exhausted and exhilarated at the same time. Glad to be back now!

Educate Yourself About Memorial Day

As an Air Force veteran, I’m convinced that what I did while wearing the uniform of my country pales in comparison to the sacrifices made by those who truly deserve recognition on Memorial Day. If you don’t get my point, please educate yourself about Memorial Day.

21-Gun-Salute

Memorial Day is NOT just another holiday to provide business owners a collective excuse for holding a three-day extravaganza sale and offer 10 percent discounts to military veterans and their families.

Memorial Day is NOT a holiday during which we should thank all veterans.

Military Funeral

Memorial Day IS a day of remembrance to honor those who paid the ultimate price — including people from the military, intelligence, foreign service and other areas of government service — while in service to our nation.

Please learn and share the history of this holiday this week.
