Charlie Bear here.
Today is Memorial Day. I have memory. I remember.
There are men and women out there who are fighting for all of us so we can remain free. Free to go where we want to (within the law, of course), free to do what we want to (again, within the law), free to eat what we want, sleep when we want, think what we want.
Freedom. Let’s not take it for granted. I think we would truly miss our freedom if it were taken away. Let’s not let that happen.
Memorial Day is a time to remember. I remember.
Wiggles to you all,
Charlie Bear here. You know what? It’s Memorial Day Weekend. Time for hot dogs, grilled brats, corn on the cob, watermelon, ice cold drinks and swimming in a neighborhood pool.
But it’s also time for something else.
Remembering all those special men and women who have fought for our freedom. I have freedom. You have freedom. Without those brave souls who put their lives on the line, we wouldn’t have any of it. I’m holding a special place in my heart for all of the families who have lost a loved one who has fought for us, and for those who are still there fighting.
Won’t you join me in remembering them this weekend? Thank you!
Wiggles and woofs,
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,
