Monday we will take time to remember those who have died in the service of our country.

It’s important that we never forget many have paid a great price so we can enjoy the freedoms we have today. 

Lincoln referred to these brave soldiers as those who have given the last full measure of devotion. 

It’s more than just a day off from work. 

It’s more than just a time to roast hot dogs and barbecue.

For a long time it seemed as if those activities of leisure were disrespectful. 

After further consideration, that’s possibly not the case. 

The men and women who gave their lives for freedom believed in the American dream. 

Part of being an American is enjoying freedom, each in our own way. 

In other words we get to chose how to remember and honor our fallen. 

If a friend or loved one would have wanted you to remember them by spending quality time with family then do so.

However you chose to remember them, remember them. 

Never forget!
