#WriteWed Our Inspiring Warriors

I’ve always loved reading stories about our military men and women and that inspired me to create the Take a Chance series. It’s been a challenge to explore the many facets of military heroes and their struggles in the battlefield and off, but I so love giving them their happily-ever-after.

What’s truly inspiring is the way so many veterans have dealt with the wounds they’ve suffered while serving our Nation. People like Daniel Jacobs who didn’t let the loss of part of his leg, remaining foot, and a few fingers keep him from trying out for the Detroit Lions.

Or Noah Galloway, a double amputee whose goal it is to inspire other other veterans!

Please click here if you cannot see the Noah Galloway video.

Noah will be on this year’s Dancing with the Stars. Here he is sharing some info on his journey for that show. Thanks to Noah’s Facebook Page for this!

Then there are my friends at the RomVets, romance authors who have served in various military branches. And let me not forget my buddy Kim, from the wonderful SOS ALOHA Blog who is the wife of a military man and helps organize so many wonderful things for our military men, women, and families with the help of RT Book Reviews.

So that’s my #WriteWednesday inspiration and God bless each and everyone for their service and sacrifice.

Remember Our #Military This Memorial Day

It’s hard to believe it’s almost Memorial Day, the traditional start of the summer season for so many. But if you don’t already, take a moment to remember why this is Memorial Day while your embracing Life, enjoying Liberty and Pursuing Happiness.

Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Freedom. We would not have it except for the sacrifices of our military men, women and their families. So this weekend, take a moment to take part in services honoring our fallen, wounded and those who currently serve. Buy a red poppy from a vet and display it proudly. Visit a military cemetery and leave flowers or a flag or just take a moment to say a prayer for those that have fallen or for the safety of those that still serve.

If you’re one of the people who have so kindly contributed to my project for HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS, display your pin or tote bag (I just sent out a batch yesterday so you should have them soon!).

Thank you all for being here with me and may you all have a nice Memorial Day.
