Bob’s thoughts going into Memorial Day weekend
Bob Says: I saw a quote and really thought that it puts partially into meaning what this Memorial Day Holiday is all about! “The measure of a man may be his willingness to serve his country. The measure of a country may be its willingness to honor those who served.” I am a man who has served this country proudly (Navy 1978-82) and live in a country that tries to Honor those whom served!
This holiday is such that we should remember those who both served and gave the ultimate sacrifice for the country! But many think as I do that it speaks of those in our nations military I feel it extends to those who serve by profession or volunteering as EMS, Fire and or Police personal. So to me we need be thinking of those who gave there lives in the protection of this fine nation and it’s citizenry!
If in passing this weekend you are near a man or woman in a EMS, Fire, Police or Military uniform please say Thank you sir/madam for your service. Though slightly different thinking it would not hurt to thank a teacher as they have done some heroic things to protect the children in their reach highly show cased in the last year.
