Memorial Day weekend means a lot of things: cookouts and picnics, family and friends, and the unofficial start to summer. But Memorial Day also means something more – a chance to remember all those who have given their lives to protect this great country we call the United States of America.
Everyday we wake up with the opportunity to live our lives free from tyranny and oppression, with all the opportunity and hope that we could ever ask for.
Today we humbly to take a moment to say thank you to all those who have and continue to protect this great nation. It is your sacrifice that ensures our hope for tomorrow.
As you commute around today to be with family and friends, we ask you stop for a moment and remember those who lost their lives protecting this country. God bless the USA!
