Summer is upon us, its memorial day weekend. People filled the grocery store buying hot dogs, buns, condiments and all that fun stuff. Others packed into the liquor stores to get their beer or whatever their particular poison is. Then they all congregate around a body of water usually and celebrate, ahh the summer.
Well, me being me, I sometimes want to shake people, and ask them, "do you really know why we are celebrating".
Its memorial day, as in memory, as in remembering. We need to remember the men and women who have served this country, the ones that fought and died in foreign lands, the ones who left behind their families to face the horrors of war.
So, remember this isn't a weekend about getting shit hammered while working on your tan....its about remembrance of the fallen.
Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds, yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored. ~Daniel Webster
