Memorial Day

I would like to take a moment to thank our brave men and women who've given their lives in service of this nation, protecting the land of the free with the blood of the brave. You are in my thoughts and my prayers on this day that is set aside for you.

Like any other holiday in America, Memorial Day is a day whose purpose is often forgotten. We have parades and fireworks. We have picnics and sales. But, do we really remember why this day was set apart?

Some of us do:
The Rock
Family Tribute (make sure your speakers are on)
A Touching Tribe (more music) Here, if you scroll down a ways, on the right side are some ways to help our contemporary troops, who are also making sacrifices for this nation.
Every Day is Memorial Day (more music)
Lest We Forget (poetry)
Taps (with words written)

So, please, do not get so distracted by the hustle and bustle of "a day off" that you forget the meaning of this day. Reflect on the price of our freedom. Honor the glorious dead. Pay tribute to those for whom this day has been set aside.
