Memorial Day is a national holiday. The fact that it falls on Monday creates a long weekend, which many of us will enjoy with friends and family.
But never forget the reason it is a national holiday. Never forget the brave men and women who sacrificed years of their lives – or their entire lives – providing us the freedoms we have; freedoms too many of us take for granted.
I suggest we all take a moment or two – maybe more – to think about their gift to us, and how lucky we are to have it.
