Today is Memorial Day.

I find saying “Happy Memorial Day” hard because I don’t believe Memorial Day is a holiday about going to the beach or having a cookout.

I’m not saying those things are wrong. Not at all. I enjoy a hot dog or a hamburger with family and friends and celebrating what signals the start of summer same as anyone else.

I’m just sayin’, we should also remember why Memorial Day was originally established.

This day is for those gone, but never forgotten.


Today we should stop to wave the American flag and salute our fallen heroes.
