Memorial Day

In America, this weekend we celebrate Memorial Day. A holiday that for many announces that summer is almost here. We spend our time over these three days having  BBQ's, outdoor activities of yardwork and play. A time to get together with family and friends. Everyone hoping for warm and sunny weather.

But let us not forget that this is the day we remember. We honor those that gave their lives in war. It matters not that you agree with the war, if we should have fought, or who it was with. That is for another day.
Today it is about them.  It matters . . .  as they gave the greatest sacrifice of all. When you are wondering if someone else is worth your time or your caring, consider what they gave for those that they would never even know. They gave their life for you, for us. We honor them and their families too. How can we ever thank them enough.

Have a time of silence, a prayer and be thankful.
