Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
In the USA it is Memorial Day. A day when Americans remember those who fought for our country and freedom that are no longer with us. A time to mourn the loss of those no longer with us, but to also appreciate all that they have done for us to protect our freedoms.
A few years ago Wook took the time to lay out his thoughts on Memorial Day as a Veteren of the US Air Force, definitely worth the read and can be found here.
Take the time and enjoy the day my friends, but please remember why you get to enjoy the extra time in the first place.
Here at Addicts we’re taking the day. Mostly, I’m taking the day. Going to sit outside and watch my kids run through the sprinklers and play. In the age of social distancing the best thing any of us can do for our mental health is (to paraphrase Zac Brown) to put the world away for a minute, pretend you don’t live in it. Let the sunshine wash those Covid blues away…
To all our readers who have or continue to serve in our US Armed Forces (and Armed Forces around the world), thank you.
If there is someone special you’d like to honor in the comments, please share.
