I missed Armed Forces Day a week and a half ago, so I wanted to use this day to give a big thanks to all my fans and friends out there who are serving in the Armed Forces. You guys are doing a lot for your country and Kit and I greatly appreciate your service.
That said, Memorial Day is for those who’ve died in wars for our country, and as far as I know, I’m extremely lucky in that none of my family and none of my fans yet fall into that category (and let’s keep it that way, shall we? Stay safe, y’all). So let’s take a moment to think about all the people who’ve given up their lives for our country. Not the wars themselves; I know that I and many of you, probably, are conflicted about whether some of the wars we’ve fought have been worth dying for (those in recent memory feel more difficult to parse than those farther in the past). Setting that aside, a lot of people, some of whom had the very same doubts about the war, nonetheless went abroad to fight because we told them we needed them to, and continue to do so. That’s what I’m remembering today, what I’m thinking about and what I’m thankful for.
As I write about a gay fox and tiger. Ahem.
