Stories to Remember

Army_Memorial_Day_Flags_IN

If you live in the United States, then on Monday you will probably walk outside to smell the fantastic aroma of burgers or brats cooking on a grill, with a dog barking and the buzz of bees trying to land on your watermelon.

Most of us have traditions of eating BBQ and spending time with family on Memorial Day.

It can be easy to forget why we celebrate this holiday.

This Memorial Day, share (or read, or listen to!) a story with your loved ones about someone you know who has served in the military.

Their stories, no matter how big or small, truly are ones to remember.

And, please share your stories with us too!

Looking Back and Celebrating

It’s easy to look at the 4th of July, as a much needed day off.

We all live busy lives. In the middle of summer- with nice weather, kids out of school (yes, that’s why there are so many teenagers everywhere), and the anticipation of a vacation – we long for that extra day off.

This Independence Day, take a few moments to think back on where the United States has come from. It is amazing! If you need a place to start, here are 10 interesting facts about the 4th of July.

And, come Monday, think back about where you’ve come from in your career.

Don’t forget to celebrate your career trek too! We all have milestones that are worth a parade, 13 cannon salute, or fireworks (just like the first 4th celebration in Philadelphia had). Those accomplishments make you who you are today.
