Memorial Day

One of the greatest gifts my dad has given me is a deep appreciation for what I have and heartfelt gratitude to those who have given it to me.

I described the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to my students, and one responded, "Who cares if they can walk a certain number of steps?" (I know, don't get me started). I replied that it had nothing to do with who cared if they could do it. They do it because they care.

As we all should.

And if that was the only thing I ever accomplished, then my time here on Earth was well spent.
