This weekend is long ~  overflowing with opportunities to enjoy the simple contentments
of life...

Perhaps a stroll down a quiet lane?

It may be you prefer a concert in the open?

Or a visit with family or friends in their home or yours?

Endless possibilities to create memories....

~ ~ ~

Whatever you do, wherever you go
setting the politics of war aside
take a moment to respect and honor
the service and sacrifice 
of those past and present in the military who serve
combat, medic, ancillary support, news core
Each and every serving in great danger
all serving away from family, friends, home
all serving while we enjoy this long weekend

Take a moment to honor
those who will return home heart heavy
from what they have seen
those who have and will return injured, bodies broken
Most of all spend a moment to honor those who
will never
return at all

Much there is to celebrate, enjoy, honor, ponder
