One Chance.

It’s Memorial Day. We’re relaxing at home today and I decided to watch a movie. I’d seen it before, but today it seems to mean a little more. “Taking Chance” is a beautiful movie based on a true story. If you find the time, please watch it. It’s about a Lt. Colonel (played by Kevin Bacon) who volunteers to escort PFC Chance’s body home to his family. You journey with them, you cry, and you mourn Chance; a young man you’ve never met, but feel like you wanted to know. Today, I’d like to just thank everyone who serves or has served. Too many have fallen, but their stories can be carried with those of us who are left behind. We can be the witness to their life. Hug someone you know who serves if you can today. Happy Memorial Day! 🙂
