While Memorial Day often signals the start
of the summer vacation period,
we should not forget what the holiday truly serves to remember.
It is a holiday of honor.
It used to be call Decoration Day, an interesting fact that I didn't know.
It commemorates Americans who have died during military service.

So amidst our BBQ's and family gatherings this long weekend,
take a moment to remember those that have fallen serving our country.
Say a prayer.
Show your American colors and proudly fly your flag.
Visit a local cemetery and place some flowers.
Happy Memorial Day!
