Memorial Day is undoubtedly one of the most cherished holidays in America. For many, it’s a great weekend to throw on the BBQ and enjoy the first weekend of summer. But let’s not forget that Memorial Day is a day “on which those who died in active military service are remembered, traditionally observed on May 30 but now officially observed on the last Monday in May.”

“For no demon real or in mind could ever challenge the courage of brotherhood, tested in time. So may we walk in the memory of those who have forever hold the burden of our freedoms.”

By definition, it is a day to remember those men and women who have fallen in the line of duty. It doesn’t matter what the color of your skin is or your sexual orientation. When you put your life on the line for your brothers and sisters to protect this great nation, you are American.

So let all of us Americans remember those who lost their lives this weekend and enjoy our families. Reach out to someone you haven’t talked to in a while because life is short and we are blessed to have these men and women who gave their lives so we could live ours.
