Bigger

[tweetmeme source=”cbyndas” only_single=false]As we slide into the holiday weekend, I am struck by the fact that I am blessed to be a part of something bigger.  I am an American, and living the American dream.
Memorial Day Soldier

  • I have food in my refrigerator, cloths on my back, roof over my head and a place to sleep, which makes me richer than 75% of the worlds population
  • The water from my kitchen sink is clean and refreshing to drink, I am luckier than 1.5 billion people in the world
  • I am free to attend church, or a political rally unlike over 3 billion people that risk harassment, arrest, torture or death for doing the same

As I reflect on the meaning of Memorial Day I think about being a part of something bigger, being a part of the American dream; one that has been provided and protected by those that have served our country and made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the dreams of every little gal just like me.

On Memorial Day I will watch as my son marches with his high school band (trumpet) in the local parade arriving in our central park at the Veterans Memorial.   Over three thousand people will cram the streets of our tiny little community to honor the memories of those that have fallen and those that currently serve.  It is one of my favorite days of the year.  For an hour the world just seems right, everyone in that park will sing the national anthem and recite the pledge.  I am not alone in wanting to celebrate being a part of something bigger.

This year the best way I could think to honor those that serve was to partner with a charity that helps those returning from active duty and need help to find a job.  It is a small way to give back to something bigger than the role we play as Career Agents.  Please join us in spreading the word about Hire Heroes USA.
