Memorial Day 2019: Take Time to Remember

Today is Memorial Day in the United States. Memorial Day commemorates U.S. men and women (and service animals) who died while in military service. I’d like to think that almost every country has their own version of Memorial Day, even if they don’t recognize it this weekend.

Regardless of our political opinions, this holiday is about honoring and paying our respects to the people who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country. The United States exists because our ancestors were willing to go to battle for our independence. And today, we are able to openly complainexpress our views about our economy, our government, etc. because people have and continue to defend our basic freedoms.

For many Americans, this long weekend probably involves grilling, watching baseball, and hanging out with family and friends.

But during the course of our time off, please join us and take a moment to reflect on the significance of this national holiday.
