Remember What We Are Memorializing
In the run-up to this three-day weekend, I've heard and thought a lot of things - barbequing, going to the Shore, finally being able to take a nap - but not a whole lot about our armed forces, who are the ones we are memorializing. Let's all take a moment to thank our troops for doing what they do so we can do what we do, and to hold in particularly reverent remembrance those who gave their greatest sacrifice possible - their very lives - to the cause of freedom and liberty.
I leave you with a link to a post I wrote six years back about Arlington National Cemetery. Happy Memorial Day to all.
