Today is Veteran's Day. It is also my grandfather, Ashot Papa's birthday. It would have been his 94th. He passed away this June. He had a long, and except maybe for the last year or so, a very good life. He told great stories and he was a kid at heart. He would seldom miss an opportunity to make a joke. I miss him. It's been a sad summer - too many deaths. Ashot Papa died, two of my college roommates lost their fathers. My great-aunt's brother passed away. My friend's brother died unexpectedly at age 34. Each death was another reminder to not take any one for granted and to milk every moment of every day. So here's to that. On the day we celebrate our Veterans, and I celebrate my grandfather, let's also celebrate life remember to make the most of it.
