Memorial Day is an American holiday designed to remember and honor those who have died in military service during war time throughout our nation’s history.
To put that in perspective, we’re talking about 1,321,612 people.
That’s why Monday, May 27th is a holiday.
I know most of us think that three day weekends were added to the calendar so we could have fun. But while you’re having fun this weekend, take some time and consider the people who gave their lives so we could enjoy life in this country.
