Across America today we gather in our communities to commemorate Memorial Day, a holiday with a true meaning. It is the day we take a break from our daily routines to honor the men and women in our Armed Forces who died fighting for our country.
Now, many people may have different opinions on the wars America has chosen to participate in. They are entitled to their opinions. That’s perfectly fine. Our military fights to protect a democracy that allows and embraces open criticism of our government. However, today, the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice,deserve our respect and attention. Politics should be put aside, and we should remember they gave their lives in pursuit of a stronger nation and safer world.
Throughout the year, they maybe remembered by family members, but today all of us in America should remember that this is not just the day to kick off the start of summer, clean off the grill and light up the barbecue, or head to the shore. There will be many parades today. As our flag, Old Glory, passes by, remember what our flag symbolizes. At your barbecue give a toast to the brave who gave their lives to protect us and give thanks. Sleep well knowing our Armed Forces are out there in harms way for you.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
