The Impossible "Thank You!"




traditionally, in the US, the long
Memorial Day weekend is the start
of the summer...



and we get to do this...



...and this...



because of...



this...





and this...






while never truly feeling the weight of this...






or, God forbid, this...


so, here's my little "thank you" for what it's worth...
to every American who serves today and has served...
 
and particularly to all who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of
our country...WE OWE THEM A DEBT WE CAN NEVER REPAY.
for the vast majority of my life soldiers have been VOLUNTEERS, doing
 what 99.99999% of us will never have to do...so humbling.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, to the families who have lost their loved ones,
their loss is a daily sacrifice that we don't really deserve.


 i know that i was so blessed to have been born in
the United States and i am very
proud to be an American! i also know that others have secured
those blessings for me and for that, i am forever grateful!
