I'm a day late with this, but I'm pretty much a day late with all my blogs. Yesterday was Memorial Day, and as I'm sure you can all guess, this is an important day of remembrance in our house. I have been getting rather annoyed in the past few years that people seem have to forgotten the true meaning of the holiday. I heard about the bumper-to-bumper traffic all the way down the parkway to the shore, starting on Thursday night. I watched on the news Friday morning, people setting up on the beach at 5 am!!! I know that Memorial Day has become the unofficial start to summer, but that is not what it's about. It's about remembering all those men and women who gave their lives for our freedom. We are allowed to spend our days at the mall and down the shore, sitting outside with friends, grilling and enjoying the sunshine, because of their sacrifices. I just think it's important to pause and reflect on just how lucky we all are to be alive and enjoying our freedom. Thank you to everyone who has ever served in the military and to their families left behind. We should remember you today and every day.
