Most holidays have lost their meaning. Memorial Day is certainly one of them. It marks the end of school, the start of summer, a fun filled 3 day weekend and practically everything everywhere is on sale.
Let's take a least a moment to remember and thank those who have given the ultimate sacrifice allowing us to enjoy all of these great things.
"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived." -- George S. Patton
