In Case You Thought Memorial Day Was All About A Three Day Weekend...
Memorial Day weekend.
For an ever growing number of Americans it's just another three day weekend and millions of us will pack up our families and our stuff and head out to the lake, the park, or even our own back yards to celebrate it by burning a few burgers. We'll slam down a few beers. Play a little touch football with the kids and generally have a good time.
But I can't help but wonder how many of us even bother to think about those who lost their lives defending this country so the rest of us could enjoy the silly, every day things most of us now take for granted.
Memorial Day was set aside as the one day of the year that we as a grateful nation could honor the service men and women who died defending this country.
I'm not so sure we're that grateful nation we once were though.
To Veterans everywhere, past, present, and future I thank you for your service.
I know it's not much but when you get right down it, it's all I got...
