As we reflect on the service men and women who have their lives for all of us today – we all know someone who has,

It’s a reminder of our own gift of life.

“Memento mori” is Latin for: “remember you will die.” … it sounds morbid and can be depressing to dwell on, but think about it… we are all going to die.

But this philosophy can be a tool to create priority and meaning

The basic idea is that if people remember their inescapable deaths, they will lead more sober lives, live in the present, and take advantage of opportunities rather than postpone them ’til “tomorrow.”

To live a life in which we did all the things we wanted to do, and hopefully cheered the world up in the process and left things in a bit better shape than they were before we arrived.

“Let each thing you would do, say or intend be like that of a dying person.” — Marcus Aurelius

We owe those who sacrificed for us to live a life of priority and meaning.
