meaning of this holiday.
Lets start with a brief history lesson. Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day, it began after the Civil War to honor the Union soldiers, it was expanded to include all soldiers after its 20th anniversary.
While you are traveling, partying, shopping, going to a movie or just breathing take a moment to say thank you to the men and women who have served in all branches of the military. Those who protect our freedom, and whether you agree with the politics of the wars in which they have served they still deserve your respect.
Thank you for giving up your life, your comfort and being separated from your families so I can write this blog and live freely in this crazy place we call America.
