If you’re traveling this weekend, be safe. If you’re hanging out this weekend, relish it. Whatever you do, laugh a lot, eat yummy stuff, revel in the love of your family and friends. If you’re barbecuing – make sure you have charcoal or propane before you’re ready to grill. Sleep in, rise early. Relish that you have the choice. Whatever you do – enjoy. And for my son, who was in Baghdad a few short years ago – I will take a moment to be grateful for those who have served the USA with courage, conviction and enormous sacrifice. For my dad and my father-in-law, I will pause and honor the reality that as young kids they enlisted en masse to end a war that was to end war. And I will also bow my head and wonder for a little while, why we can’t learn from history.
This is a crazy world we live in – enjoy your weekend to the max!
