Remembering Our Veterans

It can be easy to take our freedoms for granted. We can get so accustomed to getting whatever we want, or having the ability to work for what we want. It may be too easy to forget that not everyone has been so lucky as those of us who are alive. Whatever freedom you have, is due to the sacrifices made from our veterans. Remember that. Never forget that.

If you see a veteran, take the time to simply thank them. Go to a veterans home and pay a visit. Hear their stories. Take the time to volunteer being a transport for a veteran’s hospital/doctor visits.

If you think you have it rough, listen to how one retired soldier ended up without legs. It is because they were fighting for our country and the freedoms you may be taking for granted. Remember that.

If you know of a veteran who sacrificed their lives for their country, pay homage. Show your respect.

Memorial Day is for remembering our veterans, and not ever saying this is a meaningless holiday. (I am writing this article because I read how a major company is calling this a “meaningless holiday”.) IT IS NOT.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend

Happy Memorial Day Weekend to all my U.S. readers. Thank you to all veterans who have fought and sacrificed for our freedoms.

If you know a veteran, thank them. If you are a veteran, thank you. If are currently serving, thank you.
This weekend is for those in the military who have made live easier for us common folk.

Thank you.

Using My Toes To Dress Myself

Here’s an excerpt from my upcoming book about living in a body cast for two years…

When I needed to get dressed, I would pick my clothing up with my toes. In addition to helping out with my toe muscles, this made for a great experience. I did not have to rely on anyone or anything else. It took time, but so what. Life isn’t too rushed while living in a body cast.

For socks, I would pick up my sock by grabbing a hold of it with my toes. I would slide the upper portion of the sock between my big toe and next toe. At that point, I would slide the sock over my other foot’s toes. I slowly would pull it down over my heel. Then, I would raise my heel and slide it on the bed. That way, my sock would slide over my heel and foot. After having my sock cover my heel and foot bottom, I would pull it up with my good foot. There really wasn’t much room to pull it up over my leg since my cast started at my ankle.
