This past week, I purchased a new flag for my home, added accent lighting, stood on the front lawn, and paused to say thank you to the many who have died to defend what that flag represents.
The phrase, Life…Leadership…And A Little About Love came to mind.
The lives that have been lost.
The leadership that has been brought to the forefront on the battlefield.
And the love of those who have learned over the course of two hundred plus years that their hero has died.
I imagined, men and women of every branch of every war and conflict this nation has ever been a part of, standing with me on my front lawn and me turning to them and saying two simple words, “Thank you.”
