The mom says:
Callie has told me for years that she’s wanted a tattoo – I never told her no – just that she better be able to care for herself if she gets one. The day of Spencer's funeral she told me when she does – it would read “Make it Count.” I conceded the idea wouldn’t be horrible. I’m still not thrilled with the idea of a tattoo on the young lady, however I can’t express how much I respect her connection to the reason.
The daughter says:
I realized last August how easy it is to just go through the motions. I decided that like Spencer, I want to live my life so that when I move on from this world people know I made my time here count too. It's a message I love being reminded of everyday-- and I love sharing this simple life changing concept with others when they ask what's on my arm.
Thank you both for sharing your Make It Count story. And thank you for your service to this country, 2Lt. You are certainly making it count, too.
