Memorial Day 2023 - Honoring America's Fallen Heroes


Memorial Day transcends mere leisure, extending beyond a weekend respite, a feast, or an escape to the beaches. It stands as a reverent occasion, a solemn tribute to the valiant warriors who selflessly laid down their lives for their nation. Memorial Day embodies a moment of collective remembrance, honoring the courageous souls who made unimaginable sacrifices to safeguard our liberties. 


As Monday dawns, let us unite in unwavering homage to those who never returned, an eternal devotion that should permeate every single day of our existence. This sacred juncture compels us to reflect upon the immeasurable cost of our freedom, borne by the indomitable spirit of those who paid the ultimate price.


This Memorial Day, please take the time to pause and reflect the true meaning of this holiday. Honor the legacy of those who served and sacrificed everything, by setting aside time to pause and reflect - may we never forget, freedom isn't free.


“Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy forget in time that men have died to win them.” —Franklin D. Roosevelt



I share the above photo each year as veteran friends of mine and residents on one of my favorite streets in Charlotte, always prepare their home the week before their big Memorial Day gathering at their home. The century-old hardwoods, flowering shrubs and greenery surrounding their gorgeous home are a perfect back-drop for the over-sized American flag.

I hope that everyone is having a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend!  I am not doing anything special myself, but I am hoping I will have plenty of time to relax later today, haha.

Good morning Debe. We had a family cookout on Saturday. Today is a somber day for me to not only remember those who paid the ultimate price but this who served and did not die. The price of freedom is expensive and luckily all do not have to pay the ultimate price.

Thank you everyone! I had a houseful of company on Memorial Day. We all shared stories of those we knew who served and lost friends and those who lost loved ones. It was a special day as we all have family who served our great country and the stories were heartwarming.

Memorial Day has come and gone. Yet it is always a special day for us. My wife lost her Uncle in the Vietnam conflict. I never know him but I have heard that he was quite a guy.
