As we near the weekend, I wanted to take time to ponder and remember why it is that we have this Holiday Weekend. Memorial Day was orginally set up to honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for us, those that gave their lives in combat.
I want to add my voice and my heartfelt thanks and gratitude for those heroes that died so that we may enjoy the freedoms and way of life that we enjoy. They didn't worry about politics or ideologies beyond the fact that their country asked a sacrifice of them, and they gave it! Thank you, and each of your families!!!
Memorial Day evolved then into a day where we honored our beloved dead. Those family and friends that meant something to us. To them again I say thank you, for being there for me. Thank you for all that you gave and taught me.
While you're out enjoying yourselves this weekend, take a minute to say thanks!
