Memorial Day – it means so much more than weekend sales and this little red, white and blue outfit I put together to mark the day.  I didn’t serve in the military, but I was raised in a military family.  As a result, I have a tremendous respect for the men and women who serve our country.  Most of us will never know the extent of their hard work and sacrifice.  In fact, most of us really don’t understand the purpose of today’s holiday.

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, has been recognized in the United States since the civil war and became a national holiday in 1971.  Because it lands on the last Monday of May it also marks the unofficial start of summer.  The true purpose, however, is to remember those armed service men and women who have fallen in service of the United States of America.  So many men and women have paid the ultimate price, or have had their lives changed forever, fighting for the freedom and the ideals that make America what it is.

While you’re enjoying your extra day off, please take a moment to remember our fallen armed forces members and their families.  Thank a service person when you see one.  For the work they’ve done and the sarifices they’ve made, they deserve it.

Thank you for reading,
