I began this blog with an image search and that brought tears to my eyes. I found one image of a young woman laying on a grave at Arlington National Cemetery grieving for her lost fiance killed defending his country. There are many other images and stories of countless others, too. I could not show that particular image as I felt it would somehow violate the trust and relationship that was demonstrated by her grief.
Business blogs are not normally emotion filled but on this Memorial Day what are you doing to recognize those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect you and your family? Show the military community that you care; participate in the event by more than opening your doors for sales, etc. Products and services are critical to your success--I get it! But on this Memorial Day, remember those who made it possible to enjoy the freedoms we have-- get it?
