We have so many fallen to remember. Too many wars. We are all touched in some way by loss, and some of us are overwhelmed by the numbers. I know I am. But it is important that we remember.
Today is about finding a way to honor those memories. I didn’t and don’t personally know any of these women, but I’ll carry them with me all day and for more days than I know. I’ve read their stories now and I’ll return to them again and again because they are the little stones I’ve sewn in my pockets to keep me grounded.
