This Memorial Day, I am holding all the lives lost to combat close to my heart. I am reflecting on their sacrifices that provide the security that allow us to enjoy life. I am thinking of their families and loved ones left behind and pray that they may know peace in the face of loss. Dedicating one’s life to one’s country is immeasurably brave and beautiful. We honor those who have passed while serving in the armed forces by continuously working to make our home a better place for everyone. Have a safe and blessed Memorial Day, Brooklyn.
