A Day of Remembrance

candles-2628473_640The last few days have been so incredibly busy.  I barely had time to breathe, yet I still felt a heaviness on my heart yesterday.  I sent up a little prayer for the fallen heroes and their families every chance I got.  At the same time praying for all the family and family of friends in the middle of Irma.

In a sense, I feel a little bit of “survivor’s guilt”.  Having come out of Harvey completely untouched while I look around and see so much destruction and loss.  Not only here but in Florida and the Caribbean as well.  My life has returned to normal like nothing ever happened.  I know I’m not the only one that feels this way, others have mentioned this to me as well.

For some reason I feel like these last few days have issued a call to service.  A call to give back to the community and help all those who have lost so much and who haven’t been as blessed and fortunate as I have been. And while I always know that’s what I should be doing, I let life get in the way.  For some reason I can’t help but feel that is one call that I shouldn’t disobey.
