Memorial day is tomorrow despite the fact many believe it to be on Monday. Sorry but it’s not, it is not an excuse for a three day weekend. It is a day to stop, pause, and reflect on the men and women who have paid the ultimate price so that we wouldn’t have to.

Many have never been to Arlington or seen the Vietnam Memorial. I have seen both, it is extremely sobering. Many take the gift of freedom for granted. They have no concept of the sacrifice made by so many or the impact it has beyond just those who never return.

Tomorrow at noon, I ask, stop whatever you are doing for one minute. Reflect on all the men and women who never came home, never saw their families again, never saw their children grow up, never got to retire and grow old in peace. One minute towards thanking them, remembering them, and appreciating what they’ve done so you wouldn’t have to.
