For many Americans, "Memorial Day" is every day.
Everyday is remembering friends and family oversees.
Everyday is remembering friends and family that never returned.
Everyday is remembering friends and family that returned, with the stain of war.
Everyday is remembering the struggle that those who served faced - from our government, from employers, from heath care professionals, from us who don't know or understand what they endured...
Everyday is remembering the struggle that those who love and support those who serve face. How do we help those who protected us and protect them from the challenges they face from government? From bad employers who don't understand or aren't willing to work with the challenges of their service? From health care professionals who won't or don't accept insurance for their injuries and are too costly for the veterans (who often struggle with "normal jobs") to provide on their own?
What are you/we really doing on this Memorial Day? What can we do?
As an artist, I create.
What will you do to support our military?
What will you do to support those who support the people in their families who are in themitary?
What will you do today to remember?
Who will you remember?
