How much of what I post online is real sentiment or something I’ve pondered? How much is just “me too” posts to fit in and not to feel left out?

I think about the empty parade of happy birthdays courtesy of Facebook or the endless “thank the troops” posts on Memorial Day.

If you’re going to thank the troops then thank someone you know. Thank a family member. Thank a friend. Thank a spouse. Thank a co-worker.

Take a moment and thank someone you know. Thank someone who means something to you.
