Memorial Day: The day in which we honor those who gave all

Updated: May 29, 2021

Although Memorial Day is the official start of summer, it is actually a sacred non-religious day to honor the men and women who gave all on the battlefield.


I know that it's quite easy to say "Happy Memorial Day", or focus on cooking out and having a picnic, but this is not the purpose of Memorial Day. It is to honor our war dead.


We shall never forget our military men and women who gave their all. Without their sacrifice, we would not have freedom. So, we are also eternally grateful for their service.


Here's a quote from the late, great President Ronald Reagan:

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”


Finally, this is a link to Ronald Reagan's speech on Memorial Day in 1984: https://www.rev.com/blog/transcripts/ronald-reagan-memorial-day-speech-transcript-1984


Enjoy your weekend, but let's remember and respect the real purpose and meaning of this holiday. Thank you.
