Memorial day is a great time to get together with friends and family, enjoy an extra day off of work and have a BBQ. Whatever your plans this memorial day, however, make sure that you take a moment or two to remember the real reason for the holiday – honoring all those who have sacrificed for our freedom.
Wondering what you can do? Check out your local newspaper or Veteran’s association – many times even your local cemetery will be doing something special to mark the occasion. This is a great opportunity to get out in your community and teach your kids (if you have them) or just show your support.
Happy Memorial Day!
