Memorial Day has evolved into the "kick-off" of summer. But that is not the real reason for the holiday today. Memorial Day is remembering all those who went before us who defended our country and gave us the rights we have today. Nothing we do today should remove that from our memories.
Because if we didn't have these people who stood up and defended us, we wouldn't have the abiltiy and freedoms we have today.
We need to remember them and say "THANK YOU!"
