May 30th, 2022 is Memorial Day. While many celebrate this national holiday as the unofficial start of summer with feasts and festivities, it’s more importantly a day to remember, honor, and commemorate those who have lost their lives serving in the U.S. military. It is a solemn day paying homage to their bravery and gives us all the opportunity to express gratitude for their ultimate sacrifice.
We’d like to invite you, our Members, to join James for a 10-minute Breathe “Memorial Day” row available in your on-demand library on Monday, May 30th.
In this commemorative row, James will share more about his family's personal connection with Memorial day while recognizing those that have served and lost their lives in the armed forces.
“I’ve always held a tremendous amount of pride when thinking about the members of my family that have served in the US Military. Memorial Day for me is always a time to remember the sacrifices rooted in the belief in our country and what makes it great. When thinking about my Grandfather General William Joseph Crumm that died serving I’m overwhelmed with pride. When I see his pictures or listen to his story or hear recordings of his voice, that pride for where I came from makes me want to stand up taller and live in a meaningful way,” says James. “Miles on the water have always been a place for reflection and appreciation. I want to take this row to reflect and appreciate those that have paid the ultimate price protecting our freedom and observe the men and women who believed in our country wholeheartedly.”
