Warrior News

A Weekly Newsletter for Warrior Families and Students

May 22, 2020

Hello Warrior Nation,

Please be sure to take a moment with your family to reflect on the significance of the Memorial Day holiday as we wrap up another week of virtual learning and look ahead to a long weekend. Rather than just a day off from school or work, what does this event truly mean to you? As we look around during this time of uncertainty, you don’t need to look far to see things we often take for granted. We live in the greatest nation in the world. We elect our leaders. We have the freedom to exercise our voice and opinion, sometimes regardless of expertise or important foundational information. What will we do with this freedom? Do we take it for granted?

To me, Memorial Day is a day to honor our nation's true Warriors. Those who served in our military. Those who sacrificed everything to ensure we have the freedoms and safety that allow us to enjoy the countless privileges we have as an American.

This time of pandemic has created countless stressors and challenges and has elicited a broad range of emotions from anger to anxiety, frustration to fear. On this important weekend and federal holiday, please take some time to refresh and flip the focus. Please take some time to focus on what is right in our nation and our community. Take some time to remember all there is to be grateful for with your family. There is still much to be grateful for, we just need to take the time to see it.

Additionally, take a moment to take action. Send a message of gratitude to a veteran or someone currently serving our country. One of my favorite traditions of Muskego High School is the Homecoming slideshow with all of our graduates who are serving our country in the military. Reach out to one of them or their families and let them know how grateful you are for ALL that they do to preserve the freedoms we cherish.

THANK YOU to our greatest example of what it means to be a WARRIOR, our military.

Take care and stay safe.
