Before this weekend started I was hoping to work a bunch and get caught up on my business. A series of unfortunate events and two clients cancelling viewings has left me with 3 solid days of rememberance and family time. I'm not complaing at all. As a single father and only having my girls every other week. I will use this extra quality time to educate my girls on why this "MEMORIAL WEEKEND" is so extremely important.
First for those of you that don't know this day was started after the Civil War. It was refined during the years after WW1. Here' a short video explaining this better than I can.
Here's a second video that I believe truly shows raw emotion and some of what our solidiers go through on a daily basis. This video has over 12 million views on youtube. I know some if not most people will not have heard of this musical group, but I challenge you to watch this. See, hear and feel the video. May all of us be thankful for the lives we live and the freedoms we have. I know in my heart I'll be thankful this WHOLE WEEKEND!
