It’s true that many of us idolize players on the ice, calling them our “heroes” from time to time. Perhaps they are a “hero” for advancing us to the next round in a quest for Stanley, or because you simply love their style of play.
Maybe they are heroes of the ice, but the real heroes are the men and women who have given their lives to protect yours.
Don’t forget to take a moment to remember our service men and women for their sacrifices; not only today Memorial Day, but every day. While today is a day of remembrance for those who have lost their lives, be sure to take a moment to also thank those who are still fighting. After all, it’s because of them that you’re able to cheer for your favorite hockey team or strap on a pair of skates to play in your local league without worry.
So, from our Pink Puck heart, we’d like to thank all those who have lost their lives and the brave men and women who continue to fight for our freedom.
