Commemorating Memorial Day

For those of us who are Americans, Memorial Day is a day we commemorate those who have lost their lives as they have fought for our freedom. Although we throw around, “Happy Memorial Day!” while we plan for our barbecues and celebrate the three-day weekend, the day is a day to remember the liberty we have is because of those who relinquished theirs. Many men and women have voluntarily put themselves in harm’s way in order that we might be able to continue to enjoy our inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

As we remember those who have fallen for us, let us strive to honor their sacrifice by creating, enjoying, and remembering a life worth living.
