Monday, May 30

Today, I will be quiet.  I will remember all those who fought and died for freedom and basic human dignity.  I will remember those who are serving right now, too–far from home, holding the line, living from one courageous moment to the next.  God bless our servicemen and women–you are the very best of America–and I pray that each and every one of you will come home safely, and soon.

No remembrance would be complete without a mention of my late dad, Grady “Skip” Lael, proud Marine and former town marshal.  Dad, you taught me practically everything I know about ‘toughing it out’, hanging in there, sticking with it until the job gets done, and doing the right thing.  You and Mom were always around, and I felt safe–that security is still with me to this day.

Thank you.

I have lots of news, but I’ll write about that tomorrow.

Today is for remembrance.
