This weekend is a special one surrounding a special day: Memorial Day. It is a weekend for us to remember the many brave men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms and liberties. It is a weekend for Americans to show our gratitude to the lives lost defending this great nation and the principles for which we stand.
President George W. Bush once said something that encapsulates this holiday best:
“Their sacrifice was great, but not in vain. All Americans and every free nation on earth can trace their liberty to the white markers of places like Arlington National Cemetery. And may God keep us ever grateful.”
As you enjoy the weekend with your loved ones, be sure to remember what this weekend is truly about. We have so much to be grateful for and celebrate. Here’s to a wonderful Memorial Day weekend to you!
