Memorial Day is a holiday. A day off from work.
Ask yourself a day off for what? What does it mean to you? Do you or your family have a Memorial Day tradition? How is this holiday anchored in your life?
Memorial Day is a day of reflection and gratitude.
It is a day to remember men and women of past generations who fought to protect their way of life. They believed in a country that encouraged freedom for all, the ability to worship, to make a good living, to make a better future for their children, to uphold values that maintained tenets of culture and civilization.
Were they that much different from us today? What would they say? Would they marvel at what has become of the world?
Take a moment to think about his. Then send a little thank you to all of them from your very core. A blessing to the universe for being who we are and living in this great country.
