A couple of days ago, we celebrated Memorial Day. It was a day when we remember all those who have given their lives so that we may live in freedom.

Memorial Day is a day, which some people use as an opportunity to remember all those who died, and although they did not serve in the military, brought freedom to the people they came into contact with.

I have never lost someone close to me who died while in the military but I have lost many people who brought me freedom of another kind – mental, emotional and spiritual freedom. They were in my life long enough to make a profound difference and I will cherish and remember them as long as I live.

We all have people who, for whatever reason, seemed to die too young, “before their time”, yet seemed to make a difference in the world for the better. We honor them as well as those who died for us in battle and we do this by never losing our gratitude which, without them, our lives would not be as it is today.

“Heroism doesn’t always happen in a burst of glory. Sometimes small triumphs and large hearts change the course of history.”
