Memorial Day Remembrances

Well, it is Memorial Day again here in the United States.  For most, this means a weekend filled with picnics, BBQs, and lots of time spent with family members.  There’s nothing wrong with any of that, of course; heck, I spent much of my day yesterday a family picnic myself, so I’m hardly in a position to criticize any of your celebration decisions.  (Although, I do hope you took some steps to keep the cost of the food at the picnic to a minimum.)

That said, as always, I hope that you spare at least a few passing thoughts to just what we are memorializing today.  If you have any family members who have served in the armed forces, remember to thank them for all that they have done for you and the country.  It doesn’t take much to show them that you remember today as more than an excuse for overeating and lounging in the sun.

Alright, that’s enough from me; I think you get the picture already.  Have a good Memorial Day, and here’s hoping that the rest of the week also goes well for you.  See you back here tomorrow!

Thank you for your sacrifice
