Memorial Day is about far more than cookouts, car sales, and the unofficial start of summer. It’s the day we remember those who have given their lives for our country. Whether we agree with the wars that were fought, men and women still died and their service should be remembered and honored. Life is precious and their deaths left great grief and pain – and respect for why they died.
Take a few minutes today to remember and give thanks.
My grandmother died on Memorial Day in 1960. She didn’t fight in a war, she was just a loving, plump lady from New Jersey who lived for her family, friends, and God. Every year on this day I call my mom and we remember her together.
