“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
― Winston Churchill
We wanted to take time to remember those for whom this day was intended by thanking all those who have given the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of their nation. There is no greater thing someone can do than lay their life down in defense of others. For that sacrifice we are always humbled on this day and it is something we try to be mindful of in the midst of all the noise that this day has become; we wish that Memorial Day would be more about this than this.
Thank you to those who have given themselves in defense of our freedom. Thank you to all the friends and family who have to reconcile the pain of their loved one’s selfless act. It’s never a consolation, but their sacrifice is not forgotten nor taken lightly.
