Please remember that today when you are BBQing with your friends or family there is a reason that this day exists.
Memorial Day is for all of us to remember and appreciate every single life given for this country. To protect its ideals and citizens.
Its these selfless acts that give us the freedoms we all take for granted every single day.
It does not matter what you think of our government, or whether or not you believe that we are sticking our nose in where it shouldn't be.
This is for the american lives we have lost fighting for the ideal that everything is based on.
so, Take a minute and give thanks to those men and women who selflessly gave their lives to support that ideal.
To every one of them I have the utmost respect and thanks.
