While I respect and appreciate the service of all veterans and active duty military members, it is important to remember that this is NOT Veterans Day or National BBQ Day or Awesome 3 day weekend celebration. Memorial day is to honor the FALLEN soliders, the ones who didn't come home from war. And while you're enjoying your bbq and pool, a lot of families and friends are grieving for the loved ones they've lost. Please be respectful and remember what today is really about. If you know anyone who has lost a loved one in war, today's a great day to let them know you're thinking about them. Bring them dinner. Let them talk about their loved one with you. Pray for them.
