On this day, in this year of 2021, I remember and honor all who have served and died for America. I also remember and honor my service to America too, USN!

I think sometimes we forget to remember and honor you, the one who loves yourself and others the most. You might also know that, if you love yourself as much as you love others, you will feel loved and blessed more than you can imagine…

It’s never been easy for me, nor do I believe life is easy for anyone on the planet. That’s because we are all the same, I believe that…

We are not the same, though, on a few minor details, that are often missed placed as all important. More than some folks are rich, many more just get by. All too many good and decent souls are in poverty or worse, homeless and without shelter.

I believe we are so very much the same, though. It is this one thing that is all too often put aside for the missed placed things. It is kindness and love…

I did not know or understand love growing up as a post WWII War Baby. My home, like 10s of thousands veterans back then, served as home based ‘critical care’ beds for all the moms, dads, brothers, sisters, and cousins who were lucky to come home. They came home injured and damaged emotionally, often for a lifetime…

In my own life these days, home must be the focus of health care. Home is where a healthy life style starts, or ends, or doesn’t start at all. Do you know homes just like all of these? I do. I’ve lived in them or been with my friends who do…

I love to start the day with a healthy life style. It hasn’t been like that mostly in my life until now, as an old 70something surf dude, I know…

Battered up, scared, and tuned up more than my share, I live with a sense that is a gift these days. I realize now the one thing that got me here in the first place. It is love, only love, and kindness…

So, on this day in 2021, I remember kindness and love. And remember too, we are all the same with love and kindness in our souls.

Remember this too, Your neighbors will love you as much as you love yourself…
