Happy Memorial Day 2017
Today is Memorial Day 2017 - a time of reflection and thanks to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we may live as people. We thank them for their service to the armed forces, to the Republic and to humanity.
The many cookouts, barbecues and picnics usual of this day, do not subtract from the importance or meaning of Memorial Day, but rather, they are activities done to to reaffirm acknowledgment of freedoms enjoyed through the valiant sacrifices of the fallen.
Thus, humanity will never forget those who gave their lives so that we may be free.
