Thank you…

I’ve been on Facebook today, surprise, and there are quite a few people posting about Memorial Day.
Thanking them for everything they have done.
There was one that was posting about how Memorial Day was not about barbecues, but thanking the troops who have fallen.
Little bit of a guilt trip there.

Well, as the day as gone on, I have thought about posting something thanking the troops, but that just seems so hollow to me.
The more I thought about it, how could a thank you be enough for what they have had to go through?
I mean, obviously I am grateful for what has been done for me and my country,
But I don’t know anyone in the military that I could thank personally or even do more for them.
I wouldn’t even know what to do for them, but I feel like something would need to be done.
Also, I worry that sometimes I get disrespectful in these situations.

Anyways, I’m feeling a little fraudulent as I go to the second barbecue of the day. (People are offering free food and I’m super behind this month. I felt the need to justify myself after that post this morning.)
The most I can offer them is my prayers?
I don’t know if that works.
I don’t know if any of this works.
