Remember

As my 4 day weekend winds down I reflect for a moment on why I have this particular day to rest.

It is a day of rememberance for those who've given their lives for our freedom.

Let us not lose sight of this truth as we enjoy whatever festivities we engage in today. Be mindful of those who fought and died so that we could partake in the liberties that so many take for granted. Our lives, our right to live as we believe, our right to pursue our happiness in a way that we find most fitting, these things were all purchased by the blood, sweat and tears of men and women who were committed to those principles. They and their families made great sacrifices for the millions of us that they never even knew.
Remember them today.
