The Memorial Day holiday is known by many as the official start of the summer season. Some individuals decide to celebrate the day with a BBQ while others take a trip to the beach to kick off the start of summer. Amidst the fun and celebrations on this day, it is important to reflect and remember what the day represents. It is a time to honor and remember those who have served in the US military; those who fought for our country and dedicated their lives to keeping us safe. We are able to celebrate and enjoy time spent with others due to their courage and valor. So this Memorial Day, during the fireworks and cookouts, think of what you’re celebrating, as it is a day that surely deserves remembrance.
