Today is Memorial Day in the United States.
I'm posting to express gratitude to all the people who have died in order to create or protect the United States of America. I feel very privileged to have grown up in the free-est society in the history of the planet. I'm particularly grateful to have grown up in a country that protected my rights as a Jew, a woman, a journalist, and a person with intellectual, professional and financial goals.
To all the families who have lost someone they loved in service to the USA, I say: You can be proud of the sacrifice you have made. Thank you.
