Be Kind

Memorial Day .

School’s out.

It signifies the beginning of summer.

It is the first long holiday weekend of the summer.

The pool’s open!

What more could you possibly ask for?

This holiday also represents a time for us to remember all of those we have lost–not only those lost in service to our country.

Which means this could be a very hard time for some of us.

Some of our losses are new.

Some of those losses are still raw. We are exhausted, from  working  hard “get over it”  so we can begin to move–like so many impatiently expect us to do.

Some losses are renewed because of international losses experienced over and over, via social media

Or, one last scenario, maybe we have never given oursleves the time or the permission to grieve.

For these reasons and for many others, please,

Be aware.

Be patient.

Be kind.

I am…

B…simply being…

I wish for you thoughts of love and peace.
