On Memorial Day

I’m all for the beach, barbecues, and three day weekends. I like having the extra day off. But let’s not forget that today is about much more than that.

Today is the day we specifically remember all the fallen military who laid down their lives for our freedoms. Today of all days is the day that we choose not to take for granted all the liberties we enjoy. Today is the day that we pledge to be thankful for those freedoms and to thank those who helped make it possible. Especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

So from me, thank you. I can never tell you in person, but I say it in your honor and in your memory. Thank you.
