This post is somewhat atypical compared to my other posts in that I really did just pop in here to tell you 3 quick things.
No frills. So, let’s get straight to the point.
Rest today. I am taking it easy today, and I encourage you to as well if you are fortunate enough to be off work. Whatever “resting” means to you – do so with no shame.
Commemorate the day by trying to be peaceful AND just. Not one or the other — both. Note that I’m not trying to tell you what to think here. If you disagree with an opinion, fine. Stand for what you feel is just. But think about the method you’re choosing to do express that stance, and in honor of one of our great American heroes (we have plenty, and YES – he’s one of them) – be peaceful about it.
Be better, because we all can stand to be. Aspire for something grand and have the cajones to act on it and the grit to see it through.
