Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer for most families and they use the holiday weekend to visit the beach or have friends over for BBQ. It’s fun and enjoyable but it views the “holiday” in the wrong light.
Today is a somber day. It is a day to remember those who have fought in service of their country and paid the ultimate price. From the Revolutionary War to the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, millions of men and women have served in the armed forces.
So take a moment to think about the freedom that we all share and the price that was paid for it.
