Memorial Day:Remembering the Fallen

Sunday, May 24, 2015
I woke up Friday morning to a facebook feed full of

"OMG. Three day weekend. Time to Par-tay."


"Wooo hooo...Memorial Day - Poolz open beeatches."

and I was annoyed.

Annoyed because too many people take for granted the freedoms that we have and neglect the real meaning of Memorial day...

and no, it isn't cook outs and thanking every soldier you see for their service.

So here is a reminder.

So while I am not saying you shouldn't enjoy your time at the pool or your big cook out, what I am saying is to remember to take a moment to give thanks for those that made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve your freedom.
