Today we enjoy a holiday respite from work, perhaps a family gathering, a picnic, a BBQ, the beach, or a visit to a cemetery. Let us remember and ponder the occasion for this day of remembrance. It is in honor of all the American military members who died in the service of our country, defending our way of life and the dreams put into motion by our forefathers over 240 years ago.

In all the terrible wars we've had to fight or that our leaders chose as our battlefield these honorable men and women went out and risked all they had and could in the name of America, in all of our names. We owe them our solemn gratitude and eternal thanks, and honor, respect, and sympathy for their families and loved ones. Thank you.

Bravo.  It's about way more than cook-outs.   And surely one doesn't say "Happy" Memorial Day???  Perhaps it should never have become a 3-day weekend and excuse to party.  Just my thought.  Lots of military movies on TV and token reminders on the news at least.
