Don’t forget Memorial Day!

MEMORIAL DAY, for Americans, is a day dedicated to the military people who gave the ultimate sacrifice for the security of the countrymen. The Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May every year and following the tradition, this year it will be observed on this Monday, May 31, 2010.

What is Memorial Day? Well, to most Americans, it’s a day off work and a chance to kick off summer activities.  Nothing wrong with that.  But we all should remember that it is a day to also honor those who gave their lives so that you and I could have a pleasant weekend, as well as freedom.

 Lee Greenwood said it well below.  And you will also see below my two favorite videos about the frustrations of many in our country today, and how we often don’t appreciate the freedoms that we have. So do you honor those who died?  Do you fly the American flag outside your home?  (I fly the flag at both my home and office year round.)  Are you all that concerned about your country?  Take a look and listen.  And have a pleasant Memorial Day.

Lee Greenwood- And I’m proud to be an American, Where at least I know I’m free. And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
