We were under attack these past 18 months while our soldiers in the hospitals that we know as doctors, nurses and aids put their lives on the line to fight an invisible enemy that was attacking our freedoms to live, to hug, to be healthy.
These basic human rights were in danger.
As the Godmother to a beautiful little girl whose parents are both doctors that fought this battle. It was very personal to me. So this Memorial Day, I would like to honor our military but also the other soldiers, the ones that fought a battle in ER wards across the globe to give us the weekend we are allowed today.
Take a break this weekend and a long breath for those who made it and for those who are no longer with us.
