We Won't Forget

Memorial Day

I’m thinking of you today.

Although we never met & you weren’t here for a long time...your life mattered...a lot.

I don’t take your sacrifice for granted.

I will continue to do the best I know how to make sure it mattered in a positive way.

It's not always easy, but when things get really hard...

...like really hard...

I think of you.

I think to myself that you didn’t die for me to bitch out when things get tough.

I often also think that it would be an insult to not at least make a genuine attempt to truly maximize my potential, because you didn’t have that opportunity.

When I think of you...

I feel it’s my duty to be the best American I can be.

I feel it’s my duty to do my best to live an honorable life.

I’m proud of you, and I want you to know:

You didn’t die for nothing.

It mattered.

A lot.

For a lot of reasons.

A lot of really good reasons.

Not everyone has forgotten.

Lots of us remember.

We won’t forget.

Thank you.
