Memorial Day

While I know there are many people who are excited to have a three day weekend from work, and I admit I was excited to have an extra day to spend with my boyfriend and a day to spend reading.  It is easy to forget what the meaning behind this day is, and that is to remember those who have lost their lives in battle.  Throughout history there have been many men and women who have dedicated their lives to our country so that we may have the freedoms we have today.  We need to take a moment during the picnics and cheerful laughter to say thank you to those who have perished in wars past and present.
