Memorial Day – We Will Not Forget

I question the phrase, “Happy Memorial Day!” While we see it as a 3 day weekend, a day of good sales, and the first unofficial day of summer, it isn’t about that.

We are asked, as a nation, to pause and remember those who gave their lives in the service of our great nation.

Veteran’s Day is to honor our living veterans – those who have served.

Armed Forces Day is to honor those currently serving.

But, Memorial Day is a day of remembrance, and a day of giving thanks.

Enjoy your BBQ, have a beer, enjoy the beach and good luck shopping for bargains. But please….take some time to remember and be thankful that we can do those things today.
