It’s Memorial Day here in the United States, a day to remember all those who gave their lives serving in our armed forces. If you live here and are of one of the younger generations, you may think from what you see on television is that Memorial Day is about mattress sales, furniture sales, and discounts on new cars. It most certainly isn’t.
It isn’t a day to say “Happy Memorial Day” either; Memorial Day is the day to remember our fallen heroes. It isn’t about fireworks, an extra day off work, or having the family over for a barbeque and pool party; it should be a day to remember and be thankful for those who gave all.
I won’t give you a big lesson on the history of Memorial Day, but I will say this…
To all of those who currently serve in our military, to those who have served, and most especially to those who gave their lives to keep our country safe and free – Thank You.
