I will be one of many who are enjoy their day off on Memorial Day. Typical Memorial Day celebrations include BBQ’s, trips to the beach, and relaxing since many people have the day off work. However, we would be remiss if we didn’t recognize the true meaning behind the day.
Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day set aside to honor the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country. So while you are spending time with your family and enjoying your day off, hug your kids a little tighter, call your mom, your dad or your grandparents, and be grateful for the good things in your life.
Most importantly, take a moment during the day to stop and pay tribute to the fallen soldiers.
