Many people have lost touch with the true meaning of Memorial Day. As a country, we need to appreciate the way we are able to live because of the sacrifices of others. It’s hard to think about loss when one has the opportunity to spend time with friends and family. But, without the men and women in the armed forces who paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving our nation at home and over seas, life wouldn’t be the same in America. Memorial Day is the day to pay tribute and honor the members of our armed forces who fell in the line of duty, fighting for our nation and our freedoms. So, as you enjoy your long weekend with family and friends, please take a moment to reflect on your blessings and honor those lost fighting for you.
To those we lost, thank you. Thank you for helping to make time with friends and family in this country possible this weekend. RIP.
