When you are enjoying your freedom on you 3 day weekend...
Grilling burgers and dogs and watching the races or attending parties with friends, or whatever you do on Memorial Day weekend.
Take a few moments and remember the reason for the holiday (not just so that Government workers can have a 3 day weekend, really): Remember those who Memorial Day is meant to honor.
Raise a glass to their spirits.
Say 'Thank You" ......it's all that they would ask.
Remember them, honor their memory, and their sacrifice.
Because of them, you have the freedom to celebrate.
