Today is Memorial Day, a day for remembering our fallen soldiers, police officers, and firefighters- really anyone who has died in the line of service. I honor the memories of every one of those men and women.
Given the recent death of my grandmother, though, today I also want to remember those who served in a different way- the wives and husbands of those who go off to fight, protect our cities, and put out the flames. Thank you for taking care of those who take care of us. Your sacrifices make their possible, and I, for one, am grateful.
