I think sometimes when we say we oppose war we inadvertently create a comfortable space for ourselves between our lives in our bubbles, and the men and women who give up everything on our behalf. And it isn’t fair. War is complicated and involves too many to be so black and white, so distantly privileged and self-centered.
Here’s to remembering who this weekend is really about and what courage truly means, despite our personal stances on war.
Deep gratitude, love and honor to all those who serve and have served our country, including our own Grandpa Vernon.
I am proud and lucky to be an American.
Happy Memorial Weekend. May our hearts send strength to those who need them this weekend.
