Hey everyone, I’m taking off today for the Memorial Day holiday to spend some time with my family. And even though this is a day that most use as a god excuse for a cookout or trip to the beach, we should also take some time to remember why this holiday exists.
Memorial Day first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. Over the years though, people have forgotten the meaning of the Holiday, which is to honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.
So please take a moment in the midst of your holiday to give thanks and remembrance for those who have fallen while ensuring our liberties.
