Here in the United States, today is a special day.
Although most of us celebrate Memorial Day with bar-b-que’s and trips to the beach or the lake or the pool, using it as an excuse to welcome summer into our lives, the reasons behind it actually call for a bit more reflection and seriousness.
Memorial Day is for remembering those women and men who gave their lives in service to our country. That is, if they were serving in the armed forces and they died, then this is the day set aside for us to remember their sacrifice.
Being the dudes left behind, and the ones who benefited from their service, it’s incumbent on us to make sure we do something to remember them. Whether it be a parade or even a quiet moment of reflection, take the time to consider where we as a country would be without those who would protect our borders and our way of life.
And realize that for their sacrifice not to be in vain, we need to make sure we fight against any and all erosions to our civil liberties that politicians today keep trying to foist off on us in the name of protection, the lying liars.
Fight for freedom.
Enjoy your Memorial Day.
