I Remember…

Charlie Bear here, with my own memories and salute. On this Memorial Day, you all remember those who have served our country in order to protect us and keep us safe. I honor those men and women as well and proudly fly the American Flag in their honor.

I also have memories of those who I want to individually salute. That would be my rescuer, Ryo Matsui, and my foster mom, Sara Golden. They protected me and kept me safe when I was living on the streets in LA. They found me, took me in, and nurtured me until I was ready to find my forever home. I honor them today and, as is my usual custom, I send them Wiggles & Woofs for their love.

May we all stop a moment and remember the men and women who are serving our country and those who have gone on before them also in service. May we also honor the memory of someone close to us who has done something courageous and selfless just for you or me.

Much love from Mom Peep today.

Wiggles & Woofs,
Charlie Bear

      Marsha,
      So sorry you lost a loved one in service. I don’t know what that’s like, but it must be very hard.
      Thanks for saying my pic is cute!
