In Others’ Words: Memorial Day 2015

memorial-day-remember

Taking time today to remember the men and women who sacrificed their lives in service for our country. I’m praying for all the families who are remembering their loved ones. I have friends who’ve lost spouses … who’ve lost parents … who’ve lost children … For them, today is not a day to celebrate the beginning of summer with a barbecue. Rather, it is a day of honored remembrance.   

My friend, Scoti Domeij, wrote an article “Dreading Memorial Day.” from the perspective of a Gold Star Mom. Her son Sgt. First Class Kristofer Domeij was killied in action during his 14th deployment to Afghanistan. Kris has the “distinction” of being the most deployed solider in U.S. history.

    Not well enough to look at the article at the moment, but my warmest regards and deepest regrets to Mrs. Domeij.
