Memorial Day 2012

memorial Day

Memorial Day. 

One of my favorite days of the year.

Not because it brings about a long weekend (although that is nice), Airshows, BBQ or just hanging with the family.

I enjoy Memorial Day for its true meaning – Remembering our  Fallen Heroes and the debt of gratitude I feel I owe them. 

Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War. By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars.

Please take a minute today to think about this.  Take politics out of the equation.  Forget being Conservative or Liberal.  Ignore your personal beliefs if War is right or wrong.  Just focus on the sacrifice that these Service Members gave……and remember.
