Memorial Day is an incredibly moving day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service.  For generations, our peers, partners, pals and parents have stood with dignity, integrity and the uttermost courage to make the United States of America what it is today: a land of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  I challenge you to set your political party preferences aside and simply let this thought sink in.  It’s not about what did right or wrong; should or shouldn’t have done; will or won’t do.   It’s bigger than that, folks.  Purposefully join together to honor those who gave their all for our collective rights, and simply pay mindful appreciation to all you have, all you get to do each day, and all your future might just hold.  Your memories are the magic of life.  Cherish them, share them…and make more!          – KD

Whether your first sweetheart’s phone number, your favorite song, or big acceptance speech, you’ve chosen to etch these things into your mind for timely safe-keeping.  Yet years later, buried convolutions release their imprints your call, and elicit surprising delight.  But it’s not the content, nor the fact that you remember it verbatim that elates your spirit.  Instead, your smile, laugh and peaceful pause for reflection evolve from the unfolding of the celebration surrounding such snippets.  When you commit anything to mind, you emphasize its importance to your heart.  Honor the influential people, places, experiences, and messages that graciously fill your moments and pay tribute to yourself by tapping the enlightening power of those memories.
