Good morning everyone! Welcome to another Monday, the last one in May!! I don’t know how many of you are at work or in school today because of a very special holiday happening today which is Memorial Day!
I always loved/love this holiday for 3 main reasons. First of all, it is kind of the “start of summer” holiday. We usually get to do our 1st boating trip on this day, get out the BBQ, have family over, do a bonfire; it is just an awesome time!
Secondly, we get to be patriotic. We get to get out the flags and wave them high. Red, white, and blue are the main colors of this day! We get to get our American spirit flowing for the start of the summer on this day.
The last reason is because, we get to remember and thank those who have fallen for us in this country. A lot of times, we just take our freedom for granted. When we have the freedoms provided for us in the Great USA everyday, we take them for granted and forget the struggle it took to get her. America is a unique land in that we are free, and today, we are thanking those who took the fall, so we can live in freedom!
Today, we remember those who gave all for us.
