Happy Memorial Day - take a moment to reflect
We are all so lucky to be living in this country, and to have a life that's relatively secure compared to so many other places in the world. Just look around at the misery that goes on in countries that have no freedom as we know it. It comes at a cost - the many lives lost to protect our way of life.
Memorial Day is set aside for us to remember those brave people who sacrificed their lives so that we can benefit. Take a few minutes to think about those who are no longer with us. Were they your relatives? Perhaps a parent, a sibling or your child? Everyone has been touched in some way, and we all can be thankful, today and everyday.
THANK YOU. You will be remembered. You will be celebrated on this day.
