May 30, 2011


Today is Memorial Day; the day we honor those who fight or who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom. So many people take for granted the freedom we possess here in this great nation of the United States. Our ancestors fought for freedoms that were being taken away from us. Our loved ones today fight for others to share the freedoms that we already have, and they fight for our country to keep the freedom that our ancestors fought for us to gain. Honor those who fight today, and honor those who have given their lives in order to secure our freedoms that we possess today.

Many people will celebrate the day by spending time with family and friends and by having barbecues. Many others will spend the day at Arlington National Cemetery mourning the loss of a son, daughter, mother, father, sister, or brother. While it is a wonderful occasion to spend time with our family members and our friends, we might want to say a prayer for those who no longer have certain family members or friends because they decided to sacrifice themselves in order to ensure our freedom that we all share today.

Remember the true meaning of Memorial Day and take time to remember those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom!
