Tomorrow is Memorial Day. To some that means an extra day off from work, for others an extra party day, or even just another day. But none of these are the true reason we have a Memorial Day. We have a Memorial Day, because somewhere at sometime (and even now) men and women died for our freedom. This is a day to honor them for sacrificing everything so that we could have everything.
Somewhere kids are growing up without one or both parents, spouses, etc go on without the other, parents who thought that their child would bury them instead had to bury their child.
Memorial Day should be the day we show respect to the people who are gone, to their families, and their legacies. A day that we have because they no longer do. We live in this country called America, because of them, with the freedom that the so paid for with their life. So while tomorrow you can go about your business, your cookouts, etc, also take a moment and remember those who gave you this day.
