Remembering Our Veterans

Today we honor all those that have fought for our country. This country was not founded in a day. It took time to build it and to keep it going takes the strength of those willing to fight for it. While it is a holiday for some be sure if you see a veteran of any war or conflict to say thanks to them.

This was two years ago in Washington D.C at the 75th anniversary of VE Day. Over 800 veterans came out in attendance of that flyover.

More Then Just a Holiday

Memorial Day isn’t just a holiday, there is an important reason why schools, banks, mail delivery and government offices are closed. It started after the Civil War and was officially established in 1971. Memorial Day is when we stop for a day and give thanks to those that gave their life to protect this country. It’s easy to forget when you have a three day weekend, that’s why I’m writing this now. When Monday rolls around remember why you get that day off.

In Honor of Veterans Day

A lot has happened this week with the election on Tuesday and the news that has shocked and shaken this country. It will take time to accept what has happened and move forward but it is important that we all do. Today marks a very important day that I hope will not get lost this week. Today is Veterans Day. Today we honor all those living and past that have served this country in any conflict to protect our freedoms. I have spent much time around WWII vets and it always amazes me how humble they are when they say, “I was just doing my job.” It is an important job and not one to be taken lightly. If you see a veteran today be sure to stop and say thanks.

Happy Labor Day

Happy Labor Day 2016! Today isn’t just a holiday giving most people a three day weekend, it’s a day to say thanks for all the labor groups that have helped keep this country moving forward. At the same time today marks the unofficial end to summer. Being home in California at the moment I can honestly say that it does feel that way right now with last night temps dropping down to 34 degrees. Fall is coming but we still have this last weekend to be out in the sun.
