Life: Happy Memorial Day!


Happy Memorial Day!

Memorial day is not all about barbecues.
Memorial day isn't just about the paid day off from work.
Memorial day isn't just the day everyone opens up their pools.
Memorial day is not just another long weekend.
Memorial day isn't just an excuse to indulge in tri-colored pasta.
Memorial day isn't just an ok to start wearing white clothes again.
Ok, so maybe it's a little bit of those things, but it's mostly something else.

Memorial Day is a set day for American's to recognize and appreciate all the men and women who served our country.  These are the men and women who sacrificed their lives for the United States of America.

How will you be spending Memorial Day?

  1. I will be spending my day working, but any military person I see, I will personally thank them!

  2. I spent most of my memorial days as a adult working so people could get stuff for the holiday. I lost a lot care for many holidays as people use it as an excuse to pig out, get drunk, and buy crap they don't need.

  3. I'll be sitting on my butt at home while all others go to work, lol no holiday up here. All the respect in the world for those who serve though, no matter the country.

  4. I have to work as I do on virtually all holidays. I pretty much signed away all my human rights when I agreed to work for Walmart. Seriously though, good point about the true meaning of Memorial Day.

  6. it is to honor those that have died in the line of duty and it saddens me so much that i cannot remember the last time i was at a cookout on that day. i am usually driving back from vacation. i always take a moment to thank those who gave all and for their ultimate sacrifice for my freedom.
