What did you do this Memorial Day? I hope that you had a good time enjoying the freedoms that belong to us – that have been bought so dearly by the sacrifice of many brave men and women on our behalf. Were it not for their selfless actions, many of us wouldn’t even be here. There have been countless instances of bravery in the annals of war; men falling on grenades to save their friends, laying down cover fire for others while knowing that they were making themselves targets, charging entrenched enemy positions….
This is not meant to be a guilt trip. It’s just a reminder that the soldiers who were saved by the bravery of others went on to return home after the war and raise children – some of whom were our parents. We’re grateful for those who have given their lives in the service of our country. Memorial Day is a time to remember … and to enjoy freedom! We celebrate because we have so much that is worth celebrating.
On that note, here are a few of our weekend highlights:
