For this Memorial Day holiday I wanted to say thank you to all of those who have served and given up so much for our country. Keep your heads high, because we appreciate all that you have done for us. You’re so unselfish and have been called to do something so incredible for everyone else, you should be so proud!
There is a good reason why rural Americans feel such a connection to the military and all of their service…just look at the picture above and those statistics. I think this says a lot for our hardworking mindset out here. Nothing is really handed to you, you have to work for it, sacrifice for it and then pass it on to another. This is how good things come to us in a country that is filled with such fortunate people (and I don’t mean the rich…I mean all of us everyday normal folks!) So thank you again for all the military, their families and friends. The sacrifice goes on and on, and it’s all our freedom!!
Memorial Day is also about remember those that you have lost, maybe not to a war or fighting, but maybe it was just their time to go. My Grandpa & Grandma Kirsch will be a few that I think about on this weekend. I think of them often actually, and how much of an influence they still have on my life. My grandpa’s love of farming, clearly, has been passed down and my Grandma’s cooking is still always on my mind! So to you and yours on this holiday weekend, I hope you enjoy an extra day off of work, but also take time to thank those who have made your life better!! Happy Memorial Day!!
