Remember – Memorial Day

While most of us are undoubtedly filling our 4 day weekend with hot dogs, celebration and fun in the sun, don’t forget to take a moment to remember what Memorial Day is truly about.  Today we must remember the courageous men and women who have payed the ultimate price for our freedoms.  Memorial day is for those who have died during combat while serving this great nation. Today while you are drinking beer and floating in a pool, take notice at the flags that are flying at half staff…  don’t forget to pause for a National Moment of Remembrance at 3pm local time…  for this holiday is more than what we give it.

“I am oppressed with a sense of the impropriety of uttering words on this occasion […] If silence is ever golden, it must be beside the graves of fifteen-thousand men, whose lives were more significant than speech, and whose death was a poem the music of which can never be sung.”
James A. Garfield
– Civil War General, Republican Congressman and 20th U.S. President
