The real reason for Memorial Day

blog2IMG_0887

It’s not about a day off of work.  It’s not about bar-b-ques and family picnics.  Or the beginning of summer fun.  This day is a day of remembrance for every one of our American soldiers who put their lives on the line.  For us.  As we remember our fallen heroes today, let’s also remember this.  They sacrificed their lives so that we may live in freedom.

And it is our duty to protect our liberty so their sacrifice wasn’t in vain.

May we never forget the real reason for Memorial Day.
