As we all know, today is Memorial Day, a day of remembrance. While my real-life counterpart had family members who fought in the wars, I had some who died fighting, mainly in World War II and Vietnam. Those who died knew that they were fighting for freedom, not just for themselves, but for everyone.

I had some cousins who had gone to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan and they had friends who died fighting for freedom. They know what the price of freedom is.

May we never take the sacrifice of our armed forces in vain.

I’ll be back with another blog post.
