Memorial Day – a day to honor those who have given their all so we can be free. Remember those who died for you while you are planning your weekend celebrations. Take a moment to give thanks, for without their sacrifice, you wouldn’t have a three day weekend to indulge in parties, picnics, and long weekends at the shore.
I am so very lucky to live in a town that not only understands the meaning of the day, but shows their American pride by proudly flying the flag. Our neighborhood is filled with flags, lining the yards, hanging off decks, and flying from poles.
To those who have served, thank you. To those still serving, thank you for putting yourself in harms way. To those who have paid the ultimate price, I thank you for my freedom.
