For many, this coming weekend will offer a respite of sorts; a time to enjoy activities with family and friends, do a little traveling, cookout on the grill (or in Dutch ovens), or just relax with an extra day off. It’s a special time in our busy schedules where we pause and pay our respects to so many who gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.
This year, Memorial Day in America is on Monday, May 30th. Whatever we find ourselves doing, the day and weekend are reminders that we have a great deal to be thankful for. Part of that appreciation is in the remembrance of what freedom has cost. It is of incredible value and we’re blessed to have so much liberty in this nation.
During this springtime commemoration, we honor our fallen heroes. After all, we live in the Land of the Free because this God-given soil is also the Home of the Brave. We’re able to count our blessings because so many others counted the cost and paid the price. To the families of those brave men and women, we say, ‘Thank You.’ We remain grateful and salute the devotion and vigilance of all of our armed forces and servicemen and women.
May God Bless each of you and your families.
