Remembering Memorial Day

If you look closely you’ll see an American flag flying above a Ranger flag. There’s something powerful to me about seeing those flags flying while we’re relaxing. In a lot of ways it’s simply a picture of reality. We relax while some stand fast and watch over us.

We got to spend a little time with some family friends we haven’t seen in a several years. One of them is a Navy S.E.A.L. He’ll retire with 20 years of service before he even turns 40. He has plans of grad school and starting a business. Another example. We complete our education and live our lives while some stand fast and watch over us, first.

However you spent Memorial Day this year, I hope you remembered that freedom…is not free. Ever.
