Happy Memorial Day

Remember what today is really about

Remember what today is really about

Remember what today is really about. Sure you can enjoy shopping sales and grilling outdoors with friends and family. However, this extended weekend has a deeper meaning than 10% off store items and burgers.

Take some time out of your day and pay respects to those fallen in the past. Fly the flag, visit a memorial, or heck, thank a veteran. Keep in mind the sacrifices and risks they’ve lived through just to allow those they love to sleep safely. Also, keep in mind those veterans you can’t thank due to unfortunate events of those same risks.

Enjoy your memorial day, but always remember those who have fallen to allow you to celebrate this day in the first place. People take their lives for granted, but without those who have served or are serving, they wouldn’t be able to make the choices they do.

Happy Memorial Day, everybody. Never Forget.

Some families will never be the same.

  1. It’s great to see something like this. Many people believe that today is Nation BBQ Day and forget the true meaning to why we have a national holiday off work. Today is a day to remember those who have and currently are serving in the armed forces. Thank you to everyone who served and currently serves our great nation, including the author of this blog article, Marine Travis Ritter. *Salute*
