This Meme Reminds Us What Memorial Day is REALLY All About

As Memorial Day weekend fast approaches, Americans all across the country will be packing up the minivan, strapping the kids in the car, and heading out of town for a fun, relaxing weekend filled with good friends, family, and of course, delicious barbecue.
While all of this is good stuff, it’s not really what Memorial Day is all about. It seems many folks around the nation have forgotten why this day has been set aside and why it’s so special.
Well, this meme gives us powerful reminder of why Memorial Day is really a time for somber reflection, not just fun in the sun.

The men and women of the military sacrifice more than you and I can possibly imagine, and Memorial Day is one time set aside during the year to give thanks for those who have given their lives to preserve our freedom and way of life.
So many have shed their blood to protect us, they surely deserve the honor of being remembered, so while you’re celebrating and having lots of fun this Memorial Day, take a few minutes to reflect on those who gave it all so you could be free.
And as always, take every opportunity you can to thank someone serving in the military. It means more than you know.

  1. I'll tell you what Memorial Day means to me. It means that millions of poor dumb suckers have been lied to and sent to their deaths by smart rich SOBs who cry crocodile tears all the way to the bank. Read Gen. Smedley Butler's comments in his book "War Is a Racket" if you want the truth.
