Memorial Day OOTD

Yesterday was Memorial Day, and more important than sales, barbecues, and OOTDs (including this one) is remembering the sacrifices of those that died serving in the American military. I’m grateful to have the best military in the world and be surrounded by men and women that would lay down their lives to protect their country. The privileges we enjoy as American citizens would not be possible without their selflessness or fortitude, and that is something we should never take for granted.

Yesterday obviously wasn’t about me, what I wore, or what sick sales are happening, which is why I waited a day to post this. Even though Memorial Day has come and gone, I encourage everyone to visit their local veterans cemeteries and homeless centers for perspective at some point. We’re all better off when more people have a general understanding of and appreciation for what the military and their families give up for their fellow countrymen.

Although my weekend wasn’t particularly interesting, I hope that everyone enjoyed theirs and took time to reflect on why we celebrate this Monday in May every year. God bless our troops, God bless their families and God bless America.

    Thank you for not doing what @potus44 did and post a bunch of pictures of yourself on Memorial Day. My family has a long history of serving in the military since immigrating to the United States and I echo your sentiments.

    You look great, and thanks for including a link to your bag so I can buy one 😛

  • There’s a lot of money to be made in making you afraid, making you hateful, and making you believe that the American Dream is dead. There’s a lot of money to be made in putting you in a bubble where you only listen to or care about people that agree with you. And there’s a lot of money to be made in making you believe that our country was never great or will never be great again. Know that in spite of all the noise and manufactured panic, this is the best time to be alive to date in the most wonderful country on God’s green earth.

  • When you work in politics after a while, I think patriotism often feels reduced in one way or another to partisan tribalism. It’s either “rah rah Trump” or “fuck Trump.” It’s calling everyone that disagrees with you a name, and convincing yourself that the only people that love our country are the ones that agree with you. But that’s not what it is at all. And watching @operationfinallyhome surprise a disabled veteran, his wife and his daughter with a mortgage free home just days before the Fourth of July reminded me of that. God Bless America
