Good Day St. Anne’s Families and Friends,

Memorial Day, an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.

While Memorial Day has become known for so many other things, I hope we can hold space for all of the women and men who died in service to our country. Many people are not aware that each year on Memorial Day, a national moment of remembrance takes place at 3:00 p.m. local time. I hope you’ll join me in honoring the sacrifices of those who died in battle, women and men who did not hesitate when called upon; they are true heroes.

How incredibly special that someone I didn’t know was willing to lay down their life for me, my family, and the values that we hold dear. I am hopeful that this Memorial Day will serve as an opportunity for us to reset our priorities, and in the spirit of our fallen heroes, be kind to each other and listen.

2020 has provided us with many challenges thus far. While we all have moments that try our spirit, one thing that has been helpful for me in dealing with these challenges has been reaching out and speaking to friends, colleagues, and family members. What great self care. If you are interested in taking a moment to chat, I’m available and happy to provide the coffee. Take care and stay safe.

Regards,

Barry
