Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
This has always been a weekend I have looked forward to, even as a child. The weather is usually warm and everyone has been anxiously awaiting a few days to soak it in and have some fun. When I was young, I had no idea this weekend had anything to do with War or Heroes or loss of life. I assumed it had to do with the end of school!
Now as I have gotten older, I seem to reflect more on these types of Holidays and try to be more appreciative of what they stand for.
I recently opened a business. I am single. I am a woman. I can choose to have children or not. I am not worried my children will be taken in the night. I can write things about or against my government if I should choose. I can read any books I want. I sleep at night and feel peace. I have Freedoms.
For this I am grateful and appreciative too any and all who have given their life to grant me this.
