this Memorial Day weekend. We usually think of the soldiers who died in battle, but we have a new battle with COVID-19 and I want to remember all of those who have died while doing their jobs to save the sick and those who were providing a service that keeps us going too! All the people behind the scenes, the grocery workers, parcel deliverers, those working at the food processing plants. The list goes on and on.
The deaths continue to rise across the world in this deadly battle.
…in all the wars while serving in the American Armed Forces. Memorial Day started as Decorations Day in 1868 to honor Civil War soldiers who had died. That’s what Memorial Day is all about. Not just a 3-day weekend holiday off from work, government agencies and banks are closed, and we don’t get mail, and lots of folks are having barbecues.
But it’s nice to take a moment to remember what the day stands for. Thanks to those men and women who served during the time of war and sacrificed their lives.
And I’m off to work! Need 2,000 words on SEAL Wolf Surrender, just for minimum word count, and my publisher is changing the title from the other book: Her Jaguar Protector to You Had Me at Jaguar. I thought that was cute.
Have a great weekend, whether it’s a 3-day holiday, or just the same old thing. I’m off to write.
