Happy Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day weekend is generally a fun-filled weekend. An escape from work. Time with family & friends. Great food. Maybe some boating or camping. It's a wonderful weekend to relax and enjoy some down time. However, I want to extend a challenge to all my readers to remember the reason we have this holiday to enjoy. Why is Memorial Day important? Share with your kids the reason behind this holiday and take a moment to remember our military heroes who fight for our freedom so we can sit back with our friends and family while enjoying hamburgers, chips, drinks, and laughs.
Patriotism: Pass it on.
