I will not be entering a new personal post this week, but will be returning next week to continue the story.
In the meantime, you may want to check our the National Moment of Remembrance Act, Public law 106-579, enacted on December 28th 2000 honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. It is an act of unity, a national moment of pause for one minute at 3PM local time on Memorial Day to remember those who have died in military service to the United States. To me, it is not a political statement, it is not a statement of our desired policies for the future on participation in wars, it is a statement of appreciation for those that, through voluntary choice or draft, gave their life in the name of our freedom. My husband returned home and I am grateful. I send my caring thoughts to those families who were not so fortunate. It is a moment of peace to honor those lost in war. May we find ways to in the future to honor peace before we lose more precious lives.
I welcome your thoughts.
