Someday, perhaps our dreams and prayers will come together and we will have peace among the lands and diversity will be the asset it should be.

Wishing you all a day filled with peace, acceptance, and full of the wonderful colors of diversity. Today in the USA we celebrate Memorial Day. A day we remember and pay homage to all the men and women of all the generations, who have given their service and their limbs or life to fight to keep America free. Freedom does come with a price.

Thank you veterans and fallen comrades and to all of you who paid the full price with your lives. Bless you and thank you.
