On this day when we celebrate the American worker, it was fitting that my cousin took the first step of his career. Riley joined the United States Army and left for basic training today. I am just overcome with emotion and pride for his selfless and brave decision to serve our country.
I’ve admired his mom, my cousin Anne, for my whole life. From the time we were kids to her fabulous teenage hair to when she first became a mother to today when she dropped her only child off to join our military.
Please say a little prayer for both of them today, if you will. I know they could use it.
