Maria Shriver Sends Apt Memorial Day Tweet


Maria Shriver is sure making lemonade out of lemons this Memorial Day. Considering what she’s been through in the last few months, Shriver is proving to be resilient. She sent out this very apt Tweet this afternoon: “We don’t know what is going on inside of most people. On this #MemorialDay, when so many are grieving in obscurity or silence, let’s keep that in mind. Be kind so many people are grieving.”

Is Shriver talking about herself? Though she’s offering hope to lots of other people, there is no doubt a personal message there too. Her “be kind” is a nice way of saying to the press and everyone in the world gossiping about her terrible situation with Arnold Schwarzegger to back off. We don’t know everything–just what’s come spilling out in the tabloids. Shriver no doubt has a longer more detailed story. And she is grieving for a lost 25 year marriage, a friendship, and the trust she thought she had–despite numerous public warnings that Arnold’s behavior with women was quite bad.
