The importance of this day didn't become evident until I moved to the United States and started living in a military community. I have watched the daily sacrifices of service members and their families.
The great benefits and freedoms we enjoy in this country are because many men and women valued their country's welfare more than their own. I am truly grateful to be living in the land of the free and home of the brave. I honor the valor and courage it takes for one to serve their country. Let us never forget the price that has been paid for each one of us.
There are many ways we can show thankfulness and support on this day:
1) Give back to the community by volunteering for a local non profit agency
2) Send a note of thanks, email, or care package
3) Observe a minute of silence at 11 am
4) Place flowers on the final resting place of a soldier
and lastly wear your fashion in red, white , and blue!
