Last Monday was the first time I had the chance to be in the US for Memorial Day. I still remember the times when Dan talked about how cool the parades were in Chicago, and that one day he would take me to one. Well, that day finally arrived, and it didn’t disappoint. I really loved to see everybody out in the streets cheering for the veterans who protected the freedom of the country and the way kids looked at them with pure admiration.
It was very special to be in front of people who have fought in world wars defending their values and ways of life, who have seen friends dying in the field and somehow they came back home and continued with their lives. I can’t imagine how difficult that must have been on them and their families; not to mention those who have actually lost their loved ones. I didn’t need to be American to appreciate what that day was all about, and I’m so glad that you guys have a day to gather all together and remember that freedom is not free.
Wishing you a wonderful Monday!
