There is, perhaps, nothing more "American" than the BBQ's, fun and family time that we tend to enjoy over the Memorial Day weekend each year. In the midst of it all, I encourage you to take a moment to reflect on the "reason for the season", so to speak.
We all have either known someone in our lives that has been lost while protecting our great country or know someone now that has lost someone they cared about for that reason.
We have because they gave.
Their fight brought our peace.
It is, and has always been, the PEOPLE, that make our country the land of liberty that it is today. Memorial Day is about remembering those that paid the price for our freedom. Please join us in a moment of silence and reflection in their honor.
