It is Memorial Day Weekend to all the folks here in the United States. When you have young children in a house they are always asking questions. My son is like my personal interviewer. He is always asking what my favorite ______ fill in the blank is. It can range for food, music, TV shows, childhood memory etc... They are also very curious about holidays. Most of us take it for granted as adults (having celebrated so many) what holidays like Memorial Day truly stand for sometimes. Some of us have become so jaded that it's more about store sales, cookouts and an extra day of relaxing than really reflecting on the true meaning of the day. My kids both asked me what Memorial Day was when we were walking home from school on Friday. It made me really verbalize and remember what the true meaning of the day was so I could explain it to them.
Memorial Day is the day we remember all the men and woman that have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. When you really pause from the cookouts, the blow out store sales and the scheduled day off... you must bow your head and think of those American heroes that sacrificed the most precious gift they had (their own lives) to protect the rights of others.
So this weekend and especially tomorrow, take a moment out of your day to pause and say thank you to those brave souls that lost their lives for us. I say Thank you.
Now onto the weekly review....
