Memorial Day in the United States is a time to honor veterans and the fallen military men and women who have served our country.
It is a time to remember and pray for the men and women who serve today.
As a creative spirit how do you honor their memory? Not just today, but year round?
- Do you ensure that your actions build on the freedoms and strengths that define us? Or do you game the system?
- Do you develop relationships that build mutual advantages? Or is it winner-take-all loser-be-damned?
- Do you build value, help others, and establish trust in your community, state, nation and planet? Or live your life looking for loopholes and scapegoats?
I find that trying to honor our men and women in uniform humbles me. It makes me want to be better. Make a difference. In a small way, I believe remembering to live life with honor does that, because maybe – just maybe – it will help avoid the next situation where our soldiers have to put themselves in harm’s way.
So to all who serve and have served, thank you.
