While you grill out or shop out today, take a moment and think about the life you enjoy. Think about the little things that you don’t concern yourself with every day. Think about how it could all have been different if someone had not paid the ultimate price on a battlefield somewhere in this world. Put your politics aside for 60 seconds. Put your ego aside for 60 seconds. Put yourself in someone else’s shoes that do not have a mother, father, brother, sister, cousin, grandmother, grandfather, uncle, aunt, etc. enjoying life with them right now because that person gave their life to protect our country’s interest and freedom. Think about it.
