In Remembrance

Yesterday, I attended the Navy Yard Memorial Service with my boyfriend. What an experience this was. Going into it, I didn't know what to expect. There were many speakers to represent the different branches of government and the military.

Me and the President!
In saying this, I'm excited to announce that President Barack Obama was there, in the flesh!! Michelle Obama was there too! It was a very small ceremony held outside, so let's just say we were siting pretty close to them!

Since I didn't have expectations, I wasn't let down by the speeches that were made. The mayor, Chief of Naval Operations, the Secretary of the Navy, and the Secretary of Defense preceded the President in speaking. They each spoke a speech that honored the people we were there to honor. Of course everyone expected these speeches to be filled with political agendas...and there were mentions of things such as stricter gun laws...but that's not what this day was about. This day was about the 12 people who did nothing but wake up last Monday morning to go to work as usual only to meet a demise that none of us should have to go through!

So one last post in remembrance of the 12 brave souls that have passed on. May their families have solace in the days to come.

Also, my childhood dog has not been in the best of health lately. She's 12 (or 13...we can't exactly remember which year we got her) and just recently went missing yesterday. I pray she's okay...wherever she is...and it would be even better if she came back home! I still have hope...very little (based on how she's been doing lately)...but my hope is there. If she's still missing after a week, I guess I'll just have to face it :-/

My birthday week is in full effect...4 days people!!!

Have a great week!
