Memorial Day tribute: Our reason to live; their reason to die

Every Memorial Day I make it a point to remind myself this simple truth: our freedom came at a price.

I remember that we enjoy our liberty because of the friends and strangers who decided our freedom and liberty was worth dying for.

I remember fallen friends and strangers.

I remember that they lived their life with a conviction that they had something to die for.

And I remember the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr who once said:

“If you haven’t found something worth dying for, you aren’t fit to be living.”

And I ask myself: In what do I believe so strongly that I’d be willing to die for it?

How about you? For what would you be willing…

If you don’t know, that’s OK – but it’s time to figure it out.

Can you really live, without a reason to die?

*To all the fallen friends and strangers who have made my life the blessing that it is: thank you.
