Happy Memorial Day weekend!
While it’s important to remember why we celebrate this holiday, it’s equally important that we do celebrate it.
I’ve found it so easy to feel sad or guilty with all the reminders out there to “remember the fallen”. Yes, we must not forget that freedom has not been free. Yes, we should never forget those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, nor their families.
But the sacrifice must not have been made in vain. Those of us who remain behind should respectfully say a silent thank you. And then we should find joy in a long weekend, in being with family and friends, in firing up the grill and cracking a cold one and even shopping the sales.
I think they’d want it that way.
How about you? What are you doing to celebrate this weekend?
