Wishing you a Happy Memorial Day! This seems to be the day that most people designate as the beginning of the summer season but I think sometimes we forget the real reason for this holiday.
Because so many people gave their all, we have the freedoms we have today. I saw something earlier on Facebook that had two pictures: one with a bunch of people on the beach, celebrating the holiday. The second picture was taken in the 1940’s of the men that stormed the beach in France. The caption read: “You can go to the beach today because they went to the beach then.” It was very powerful to see these two images side by side and realize the true meaning of this holiday.
So I do hope that your day has been nice, spending time with family or just taking it easy. But I also hope that everyone has remembered the real reason for this national holiday.
