Some will pause Monday as we mark Memorial Day in this nation.
Those who gave their lives in the ultimate sacrifice will be recalled.
A moment to stop.
A time to recall loss of life, love, live, and more.
When US veterans allegedly wait long periods of time for treatment these days, my thoughts turn to them, to my brother killed in Vietnam in 1968, and to those who continue to serve today.
While burgers and brew will mark the day for many, others will also pause to ponder the real meaning of Memorial Day.
Forever grateful for all who paid the price for freedom that is not free, I will pause and pray.
