Memorial Day: People Who Gave Their Lives for Us

Copyright 2015 Artisans Workshop Designs

 

Whether you’re American or not, I encourage you to take a moment today to remember those who have fallen in order that we citizens of the world have a freer and safer global society in which to live.

Please join me in remembering those who have made the Ultimate Sacrifice for us throughout the ages so that you and I, along with our friends and loved ones, have a better chance at achieving our goals and living the life we envision in our dreams.

We remember.

Your Friend and Pep Pal.

Lauren
