Thank you to our Fallen Heroes.

As we all enjoy the long weekend of racing, traveling and other leisure activities, please take a moment to remember the men and women who gave their lives so that we could enjoy our freedom.

The Indianapolis 500 is held almost holy in my family.  We love the race, and everything that goes with it.  But I think one thing that makes it special is their devotion to our military men and women.  If you ever have the chance to attend the race, you will see what I mean.  They roll out the red carpet for our military.  It is wonderful to see the honor given to our military before and during the race.  The playing of “Taps” before the race is a truly moving thing.

So, as you do whatever you do this weekend, take a moment to say a prayer of thanks for the sacrifice that made the holiday possible.  God bless our military men and women, as well as the families of our fallen heroes.

Happy running,

Rundad
