Memorial Day

Well, dear reader, this weekend is Memorial Day weekend. For some of us, this means great sales. Others see it as a three-day weekend. It’s even referred to as the “unofficial beginning of summer”. But there’s more to it than that.

What is it?

Memorial Day is a U.S. federal holiday created to remember and celebrating those who gave their lives in the defense of this country. It’s a day for considering those who’ve given their all and what they’ve given us.

Why does it matter?

Well, that’s the question, isn’t it… I can give you some answers. But, ultimately, it’s a question whose answer (s) are very personal to each of us. Would you be here reading this post if it weren’t for the soldiers of the American Revolution who fought for the freedom to form our government by the people and for the people?

What about those who fought in the U.S. Civil War?

What about those who fought in World War 2, the Korean War, or the other conflicts we’ve faced?

Consider the question, dear reader. Really consider the question. And then honor those who fought to make your life better in how you see fit.

I’ll be doing the same. And I’ll see you next post.
