Memorial Day. The first weekend of summer. People going to the lake, barbecues, and visiting relatives. Remembering departed loved ones is the second thought, if that, for many people. Time off to have fun! A long weekend to try out the new Jetski! I love a long break too and I use the time for the same thing.
The thing is, though that this day was designated a special day to remember our fallen soldiers. Men and women who gave everything for our freedom, our lifestyle, and our way of life. We need to restore the concept of honoring them and others that we mourn. I’m for the fun part but let’s do the thing that this day was meant for.
