Hello everyone and all my Ninjas!
I would like to take this time for this blog to salute all of our fallen soldiers and all who gave their lives for this country, our rights and our freedoms. Yesterday some of us had the day off from work, but how many of us actually took the time to reflect on why we had the day off and who sacrificed their time, family or lives so that we could. I hope that while some where drinking and cooking over the grill, or swimming in the pool that it crossed their minds that this country could have been a different place.
I have a friend that died years ago overseas. A roadside IED killed him and 3 other soldiers as they headed into town on a mission. We were close in high school, so when I seen his picture in the paper I teared up a bit. I think back from time to time trying not to forget his face but it gets harder as the years go by.
Here at Ninja Factory we've employed a few vets and respect those who have gone to do their service to this country. Even those who have given their lives for our rights within this country. So even though Memorial Day was yesterday their sacrifices should be remembered all year. Every time we vote, shop, enter a church, get gas, go to work, study for class, start a business, purchase a firearm, witness a marriage, buy an investment, move into another place to live, drive a car. All of these freedoms and rights to do so were hard fought by people who gave their lives so the people of their generation and the ones that followed may have them.
Please remember, never forget and be well my Ninjas!
