I came across this today, Dr. Jill Biden’s Memorial Day Post on the White House Blog. I’m sharing it, not to promote politics, but to endorse the idea that one of the best ways to live up to the ideals of those who have sacrificed everything on our behalf is to find a way to give back.
From Dr. Biden’s post…
“This Memorial Day, I hope you will take a moment to offer your own gesture of thanks to our men and women serving abroad and at home, as well as their families, and reflect on the service men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice.”
“From a big initiative to a small gesture, Memorial Day is the perfect time to offer a simple act of kindness to our veterans and military families. You can send a message of thanks to our troops or a military family. Or pledge hours of service. Or even start your own volunteer project. And afterwards, please share your story – we want to hear about it!”
Well said. Now let’s get to it!
