On Memorial Day Weekend, Remember Our Fallen Heroes
In the decades since Congress made federal holidays on Monday to ensure us three day weekends, the original meaning of Memorial Day has become lost for many Americans. Some view this holiday weekend as the unofficial start of the summer, others view it as a great time for shopping sales and many view it as days of rest from work. While all of the above are present day reality during Memorial Day weekend, we should all reflect on the day’s true meaning and take at least a moment to honor the memories of our fallen soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice in our names.
While we will all try to enjoy a barbeque, the beach or a shopping spree this weekend, let us not forget that Monday is a solemn day for our country. May those beloved hero soldiers rest in peace.
