It oftentimes seems like the norm to always & only share happy posts, happy pictures, and happy people… but as we all know, and this week more than most with the tragedies that we’ve witnessed just in the last week… life is not always happy.
But life is just that… life. It is every emotion and every feeling and every last thing we could hope for or imagine, or not hope for or not want to imagine… all wrapped in one. I hope that when we think about ourselves & what we are going through, and think about others & what they are going through… the good and the bad… that we always remember to be there. To be present. To be open to what is going on around us and also beyond us, no matter how pretty or not pretty it may be.
Some of these images are difficult for me to share… but I know that T/Sgt. Kamarainen had a story to tell, and I thought it appropriate to share the last chapter of his life with you.
Thank you to Edwin, for his service to our country, and for his life long inspiration as a strong, loving man…
And also, on a side note… please consider donating to those in need as soon as you can and as much as you can. Text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10.00 to disaster relief funds, or think about buying something that makes you happy and also makes a difference in someone else’s life.
