Every year, sometimes weeks in advance, we are inundated with commercials for Memorial Day sales. Memorial Day is not for sales. Memorial Day is a time to remember and celebrate those who lost their lives while serving our country. It is not a day to thank Veteran's...that's Veteran's Day, which is on November 11th. Why am I saying this? Two reasons: First, my husband served in the Marine Corps and lost brothers. Second, our culture will commercialize everything. I would encourage you to skip the sales and, instead, take time to honor the fallen.
Raise a glass, have a family picnic, remember why we are free.
