Memorial Day was never intended to be just another one of those Mondays off with pay. It was never created to just fill in the Month of May for that Day Off.
On this day, we honor our loved ones who have gone before us today. Mostly, we are to honor our family members and friends who died in service to the United States of America.
For those of you who have lost a family member or a friend at war, as I have (my tribute here) , you will always remember the purpose of this day. For those of you who have loved ones serving during these terrible times, you understand intinctively what this day is for.
Everyone should remember the purpose of this day before the BBQ.
May it never happen to you and your family.
