Memorial Day weekend traditionally is the unofficial beginning of summer. While our holiday plans may be packed with family fun and summer activities… it’s important to pause the festivities in remembrance of the real meaning and history of Memorial Day.
This is the day we pay homage to all those who didn’t come home. Unlike Veterans Day, it’s not a celebration. Rather, it’s a day of solemn contemplation over the cost of freedom.
“Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it.” Unknown
