In a world peppered with the three-day weekend, please take at least a moment to remember WHY and WHAT we celebrate this weekend. It's not a barbecue or a trip to the beach. It's to celebrate the vast sacrifices made by men and women through the course of our nation's history to provide the very freedom with usually take for granted every day. Some spent time too much time away from family, whether at home or abroad. Some gave the ultimate sacrifice.
My son's school has WWII day in June where veterans from all over our area come in and share stories of their service experience. The middle schoolers are old enough to really take advantage of this day. They listen intently, ask questions, and it's a memorable experience for all involved. Thank someone this weekend for their service to our country. Lord knows, they deserve it!
