Memorial Day

Today, many of us find ourselves off of work.  Some of us spend the day at BBQ’s or out of town on a weekend getaway.  Some of us camp or tackle a house project that requires a few days to complete.  Some of us spend the day in remembrance.  Some of us visit headstones and bring flowers and flags.  Some of us can never understand the magnitude of a day like this.  Our servicemen and women sacrifice for us each and every day, but on a day like Memorial Day, this day is in remembrance to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and way of life.  I was captivated by a story on NPR this weekend, Don’t Say ‘Thank You For Your Service’ This Monday, that explained Memorial Day dos and dont’s.  I would encourage you all to read the article of listen to three minute clip…and for those of you who are veterans or actively serving- I hope you’re having a meaningful day today.
