Memorial Day...

As we prepare for another Memorial Day I ask you to think about the true meaning of the holiday...




Not the amazing sales at the mall

Not the great deals on a case of beer or buy 1 great 1 free packages of hotdogs

Not the first time you're breaking out the boat this year

Not the trip to the beach or to see a concert

Not the long lines at the airport or the traffic jam getting out of the city

Not the 'free' day off of work


Its none of those things....


Here is what it truly is about...




Heart breaking picture isn't it? It hurts me to look at it as well, but we have to.






This Memorial Day please take the time to honor those that gave all for our freedoms.
