Observing The True Meaning Of The Day






While many of us will see this day only as 'the unofficial beginning of summer,' and will proceed to use it to get our cookout, picnic, BBQ on, or our travel, amusement park, trip to the beach on, or our hot sales shopping spree all day mall day on, hopefully the majority of us will take some time out to observe, and yes, to honor the True Meaning of this Holiday.

After all, it was set aside to Honor those Brave and Heroic Souls who fought for OUR freedom, and who, in doing so, paid The Ultimate Price.

Happy Memorial Day.

Remembrance is an honor that I, too, am taking time for today.

Most definitely the reason behind this holiday. Let us never forget those who have served and those who still serve.

Thank you for thinking of the soldiers and their families. Thank you so much.

Great reminder, my friend. Simple and eloquent. The final photograph on your tribute, the soldier with a single tear rolling down his cheek makes me recall the words of a friend of mine, who lost both legs in Iraq: "We watched them die, and a part of us died with them."
