Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Memorial Day; remember


Today, Memorial Day in the United States, I wish for all of us to take a moment and remember.  Remember someone in your family, or a friend, or a friend of a friend, who has served this country.

Remember that some didn’t come home.

Remember that some came home permanently changed.

Remember that we owe them all.  And that we owe their families too.

And then get on with your weekend party.  Celebrate summer and life and family.

But never forget.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. I remember a parade to the cemetery, the drum cadence changing time, a speech, a wreath dropped in the lake, and a bugle player.


  2. We are so lucky to live in a free country, and should be forever grateful to all those who gave their lives for this special way of life.


  3. “Never Forget” is a great message for this holiday, Dawn!
